How Cryptosystems Are REALLY Broken

Speaker: Adi Shamir, Weizmann Institute

Location: Warren Weaver Hall 1302

Date: October 25, 2013, 11:30 a.m.

Host: Yevgeniy Dodis


Most of the cryptosystems we currently use are highly secure, and cannot be broken with reasonable complexity by mathematical cryptanalysis. However, over the last fifteen years researchers have developed many types of physical attacks on their implementations which can easily bypass their mathematical security. In this talk I will survey some of the latest techniques of this type, and show how difficult it is to build a truly secure communication systems.


Refreshments will be offered starting 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start of the talk.
