Mark Zhandry, Stanford: Quantum Computing and Cryptography

Abstract: Quantum computers will have far-reaching impacts on cryptography.  Shor showed that many of the cryptosystems used today can be broken using a quantum computer, and I will begin my talk by describing Shor’s algorithm for factoring integers.  Next, I will give an overview of my research on attacking classical cryptosystems over a quantum channel, showing that even schemes resistant to Shor’s algorithm may be vulnerable to other forms of quantum attack.  On the positive side, quantum computing gives rise to the possibility of quantum key distribution with unparalleled security guarantees, which I will cover at the end of the talk.

Bio: Mark Zhandry is a fourth-year Ph.D. student at Stanford University in the Department of Computer Science, studying cryptography and computer science theory under professor Dan Boneh. His research projects include investigating the many uses of program obfuscation and exploring the new security models associated with implementing classical cryptosystems on a quantum computer.

    I have a conflict for tonight. Will there be a recording of this presentation? Could, at least, Mark's slides be made available?

    Thanks for all your effort in making this meetup possible!

    Thanks for the slides, Andre. You're awesome! I actually don't think I'll end up making it tonight ;-/ Sorry.
    Is there any possible way one of you can record this or do a live hangout or something?? Let me know!
