Title: A brief introduction to lattice-based cryptography

Speaker: Douglas Stebila
Affiliation: University of Waterloo
Location: MC 5479

Abstract: A brief introduction to lattice-based cryptography, one of the leading candidates for building quantum-resistant cryptosystems. We will show some basic cryptographic constructions built on the learning with errors problem, and talk about how the learning with errors problem connects with computational problems on lattices. We will also talk about the status of the standardization and transition to post-quantum cryptography.
