Jacques Stern
In this talk, I will review some of the work performed by the research community in cryptology and security since the invention of public key cryptography by Diffie and Hellman in 1976. This community has developped many challenging lines of research. I will only focus on some of these, and moreover I will adopt an extremely specific perspective: for each chosen example, I will try to trace the original mathematics that underly the methods in...
