What we're about

This meetup is a chapter of Papers We Love (http://paperswelove.org/). The general format is that once a month one member will present one computer science paper using e.g. speech, slides, demonstration. Attendees are encouraged, but not required, to read and digest the paper in advance of the meeting.

One goal is to help bridge the gap between San Diego industry and academics: membership of both types are very welcome. Another goal is to dive deep into interesting programming topics: new and old (but still relevant).

We require adherence to a code of conduct:

How to Share a Secret

güdTECH Offices

"How to Share a Secret", by Adi Shamir (1979). Presented by Nate Gentile. Abstract: In this paper we show how to divide data D into n pieces in such a way that D is easily reconstructable from any k pieces, but even complete knowledge of k - 1 pieces reveals absolutely no information about D. This technique enables the construction of robust key management schemes for cryptographic systems that can function securely and reliably even when misfortunes destroy half the pieces and security breaches expose all but one of the remaining pieces. https://cs.jhu.edu/~sdoshi/crypto/papers/shamirturing.pdf In addition to the main talk by Nate, Marvin Humphrey will present a lightning talk on "When to Share a Secret", discussing Shamir's algorithm in the context of the death of QuadrigaCX CEO Gerald Cotten. https://www.verdict.co.uk/quadrigacx-cold-wallet-lockout/ Street parking on 6th, 7th & 8th Avenues north of B Street is usually easy at that hour. Meters nearby are free after 6. Read signage before you park on A street.
