On the Role of Definitions in and Beyond CryptographyColloquium
|Speaker: ||Phillip Rogaway, UC Davis|
|Location: ||693 Kerr|
|Start time: ||Thu, May 5 2005, 4:10PM|
More than new algorithms, proofs, or technologies, it is the emergence of _definitions_ that has
changed the landscape of cryptography. We describe how definitions work in modern cryptography, giving a number of examples, and we provide observations, opinions, and suggestions about the art and science of crafting them.
