[Internal] Research meeting

This meeting will feature a talk on Authenticated Encryption by Prof. Phillip Rogaway, who is visiting our Department this week.

Please note the starting time: 14:15

Abstract
Authenticated encryption (AE) is a rare topic for so effectively bringing provable-security to cryptographic practice. I’ll describe some recent work of mine on AE, placing the ideas in their historical context. In particular, I’ll look at robust AE and why it was developed, and I’ll describe a recent notion for online AE, and why it was developed. I’ll give a modern account of generic composition. I’ll talk a bit about the CAESAR competition, which drew 57 AE submissions.
