Oblivious transfer and its applications

Mar 26, 1999

Abstract

Alice wants to send Bob one of two messages but Bob must receive only one. Alice should not be able to control or to know which of the two messages Bob receives. This is the oblivious transfer problem, and it is used in solving many problems, such as the simultaneous signing of a contract, digital certified mail, and many others. The talk will cover, in detail, how all of the above is done. No previous background in this area is assumed.
