Seminar • CrySP Speaker Series on Privacy — Where Theory Meets Practice for Privacy Enhancing TechnologiesExport this event to calendar

Monday, July 9, 2018 — 2:30 PM EDT

Chelsea Komlo, HashiCorp

​Privacy Enhancing Technology communities rely on the research community for help designing and validating protocols, finding potential attack vectors, and applying new technological innovations to existing protocols. However, while the research community has made significant progress studying projects such as Tor, the number of research outcomes that have actually been incorporated into privacy enhancing technologies such as The Tor Project is lower than the number of feasible and useful research outcomes. 

In this talk, we will examine why good research ideas can fail to be incorporated into privacy enhancing technologies such as Tor, and how maintainers and developers of such projects can work with researchers to ensure that good ideas are fully incorporated. We will look at where and why this process breaks down, and what steps are needed to ensure a complete transition from theory to practice for privacy enhancing technologies.
