Actual Cryptography at the Age of Evolving Ecosystems
Abstract: Computational paradigms nowadays change, and global systems over word-wide networks evolve. Systems have to take this into account scale, growth, and increased scope. Building and maintaining active systems is an important part of the cloud, network computing, web services, etc. Cryptography as part of an active software system has to consider the existing and future constraints, the scale, the evolution, and the enhanced scope of successful systems. Actual customized cryptographic components that are secure, based on solid theory, yet are suitable for the new style of system global nature and evolution are needed, while, on the other hand, no methodology for such components exist! In this talk, I will review my experience regarding how the cryptographic protection of Google's global platform for display ads auctions (AdX) has been designed and evolved over the last few years.
Bio: A research scientist with Google Inc. in the area of security, privacy and cryptography and an adjunct research senior faculty at Columbia University. He has been doing research in Computer Science, primarily in Cryptography and related areas for over 30 years, 25 of which also in industrial research and industry; his research covers the field from its theoretical foundations, through applied research, to actual systems and engineering
