Event details

In this talk, I will give an overview of my prior research in Cryptography, focusing on the foundational underpinnings of symmetric primitives. I will showcase three examples, the last of which demonstrates how the security analysis of hash functions with weaknesses relies on deep ideas from the neighbouring area of communication complexity. The talk is aimed at a general CS/Maths audience.
