Invited Talk 1 — The End of Crypto
talk will reflect on the core purposes of cryptology, and the extent to which
those purposes are served -- and servable -- in today's digital environment.
is Professor of Law at
He performed the first large-scale tests of Internet filtering in China and Saudi Arabia, and now as part of the OpenNet Initiative he has co-edited a series of studies of Internet filtering by national governments: "Access Denied," "Access Controlled," and "Access Contested."
He is a member of the Board of Trustees of the Internet Society, the Board of Directors of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and the Board of Advisors for Scientific American. His book "The Future of the Internet -- And How to Stop It" is available from Yale University Press and Penguin
Invited Talk 2 — Recent
Advances and Existing Research Questions in Platform
Ernie Brickell, Intel Corporation
In this talk I will provide a description of recent uses Intel
has made of cryptography in our platforms, including providing a hardware
random number generator, using anonymous signatures, and improving
performance of cryptographic algorithms. I will discuss how processor
capabilities could be used more effectively by cryptographic
algorithms. I will then discuss research questions in cryptographic
protocols and platform security that are motivated by our goals.
Ernie Brickell is the Chief Security Architect at Intel.
He runs the Security Architecture Forum which is the decision making body on
security architecture at Intel. He is responsible for review and
approval of all security architectures across all products at Intel and
evaluating new technologies for their impact on security and privacy of Intel
platforms. He is also responsible for developing priorities for path
finding for security technologies.
Ernie has been working
in cryptology and security for 30 years. He has previously chaired and
been a program chair at the Crypto conference. He was the founding
Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Cryptology, and served as editorial board
member for 12 years.
Ernie has focused his
recent personal research on privacy protocols. He developed with coauthors,
Jan Camenish and Liqun
Chen, the Direct Anonymous Attestation protocol so that a hardware device
could provide a proof that it was a trusted device without revealing the
identity of the device. With coauthor Jiangtao
Li, he developed the Enhanced Privacy ID, which improved the revocation
capability so that an anonymous signer of a message could be revoked. Earlier
in his career, Ernie received a reward from Ralph Merkle
for breaking the Merkle Hellman knapsack
