SUMMARY:Bilinear Pairings in Cryptography, Bar-Ila
n University, Tel Aviv, Israel
DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20130204
DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20130207
LOCATION:Bar-Ilan University, Tel Aviv, Israel
DESCRIPTION:The winter school will provide an in d
epth coverage of bilinear pairings and their role
in cryptographic constructions. Among other things
, we will study the basics of elliptic curves and
elliptic curve cryptography, the basics of pairing
s, and the mathematics behind how pairings work an
d how to efficiently compute them. In addition, we
will study the many applications of pairings to c
ryptography, including identity-based encryption (
IBE) and variants, attribute-based encryption, fun
ctional encryption, broadcast encryption, anonymou
s credentials and non-interactive zero-knowledge.
The school program includes approximately 20 hours
of lectures and a social dinner. The target audi
ence for the school is graduate students and postd
ocs in cryptography (we will assume background in
cryptography, but not elliptic curves or bilinear
maps). However, faculty, undergrads and profession
als with the necessary background are all welcome.
The winter school is open to participants from al
l over the world; all talks will be in English. F
