The AES-128 encryption standardStudent-Run Applied & Math Seminar
|Speaker: ||George Mossessian, UC Davis Mathematics|

|Start time: ||Fri, Oct 16 2015, 12:10PM|
We will go over the AES-128 encryption algorithm, which is the standard private-key encryption scheme used by the US government, covering why it's considered secure, as well as possible vulnerabilities in implementation, and how they can be exploited. Some basic knowledge of abstract algebra and algorithms will be helpful, but not necessary.
