This course aims at presenting the recent advances in privacy-preserving cryptography. More precisely, it covers the topics of advanced cryptographic primitives to protect the privacy of their users, such as group signatures or blind signatures.
Lectures: In room CS26 on:
- Tuesday 5PM to 5:50PM;
- Wednesday 11AM to 11:50AM;
- Thursday 9AM to 9:50AM;
- Friday 8AM to 8:50AM.
One or two homework assignment will be asked during the semester. The exam will be a 30 min presentation of an article, with a series of questions about the article and the course.
- About cryptography in general (will not be covered by the course,
but it is still useful in general to understand the topics covered
during the course:
- Jonathan Katz and Yehuda Lindell, Introduction to Modern Cryptography: A very resourceful book about cryptography.
- The lectures of Dan Boneh on coursera, also available on youtube.
- M. Bellare, D. Micciancio, B. Warinschi. Foundations of group signatures: formal definitions, simplified requirements, and a construction based of general assumptions. [pdf]
