Advanced Public Key Cryptography


In the past three decades cryptography has taken on tasks above and beyond the basic task of securing point-to-point communication channels: Maintaining the privacy of individuals in databases, secure computation on large datasets and anonymous transactions in blockchains-based currencies to name just a few.

This course will cover the state-of-the-art in public key encryption and discuss some of the guiding challenges and frontier-problems of today.

The following topics will be covered:

  • Modelling Security for public key encryption
  • Proving security of public key encryption schemes
  • Tools for building public key encryption schemes
  • Notions of public key encryption with enhanced functionality:
    Homomorphic Encryption
    Identity-Based Encryption
    Attribute-Based Encryption
    Functional Encryption

Some familiarity with the basics of cryptography is expected, e.g. as provided in the summer-term course "Cryptography".
