Title: Challenges and Opportunities in Post-Quantum Cryptography: An Introduction

Date:  20 December 2018, Thursday

Time: 16:00

Place: SCI 103

Host: Alptekin Küpçü

 

Abstract:

In this talk, we give a brief survey on the importance of post-quantum cryptography with describing current approaches. We will provide some information about cryptographic schemes submitted to NIST Post-Quantum Cryptography project. Then, we discuss the computationally hard problems used in post-quantum cryptographic schemes focusing multivariate and lattice-based cryptography.

 

Bio:

Sedat Akleylek received the B.Sc. degree in Mathematics majored in Computer Science from Ege University in 2004 in Izmir, Turkey, M.Sc.and Ph.D. degrees in Cryptography from Middle East Technical University in 2008 and 2010 in Ankara, Turkey, respectively. He is currently employed as an associate professor at the Department of Computer Engineering, Ondokuz Mayıs University (OMU), Samsun, Turkey since 2016. He is also affiliated with the Cryptography Program at IAM, METU. He had a postdoctoral researcher position at the Cryptography and Computer Algebra Group, TU Darmstadt from July 2014 to July 2015. His research interests mainly include efficient cryptographic computations, post-quantum cryptography, arithmetic of finite fields and cryptographic functions.
