New Tools in Cryptography from Algebraic Geometry |
Abstract: Over the past three years we have seen a number of exciting new cryptographic constructions using the Weil pairing on elliptic curves. For example, the Weil pairing gives rise to a number of digital signature schemes with remarkable properties. The pairing can also be used for public key encryption where public keys can be arbitrary strings. In this talk we will survey some new applications for the Weil pairing and will describe several open problems in this area. The talk will be self-contained. |
