FAU Virtual Frontiers in Science: Cryptography: How to Keep a Secret
Join Alice Silverberg, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Mathematics, University of California, Irvine for this Frontiers in Science Virtual Lecture.

When you send your credit card number over the Internet, cryptography helps to ensure that no one can steal the number in transit. Cryptography allows people to share secrets, encrypt messages, and digitally sign documents, and it is used in electronic voting and in cryptocurrencies. Some of the recent exciting breakthroughs in cryptography include elliptic curve cryptography, pairing-based cryptography, identity-based cryptography, and fully homomorphic encryption, all of which are based on advanced mathematics. This talk will discuss cryptography through the ages, and how modern cryptography uses mathematics, especially the field of number theory.
