DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, BERKELEY
SPRING 2002 COLLOQUIUM
Speaker:
Dan Boneh (Stanford University)
Title:
Fast variants of the RSA cryptosystem
Time:
February 28, 2002, 4:10 - 5:00 pm
Place:
60 Evans Hall (ground floor)
Abstract:
The RSA system is the most widely deployed public key cryptosystem.
In this talk we survey four fast variants of RSA that are fully
backwards compatible - a system using any of these variants can
interact with a system using standard RSA. The design and cryptanalysis
of these RSA variants is based on a number of algebraic techniques. The
talk will be self-contained and describe some of the necessary
algebraic tools.
Refreshments in 1015 Evans Hall (tenth floor) before the lecture.
EVERYBODY IS WELCOME TO ATTEND!
After the lecture there will be a Colloquium Dinner. If you are interested in
attending, write to the Colloquium Chair no later than Wednesday afternoon.
Graduate students are particularly encouraged to attend; they pay at most $ 15
per person.
