Computational Number Theory and Cryptography

Andreas Stein - UIUC Math Department

Mar 05, 2003


In this talk, we discuss various aspects of computational number theory
and cryptography. We first compare elliptic curve cryptography
to RSA. In particular, we provide a survey of attacks to the elliptic
curve discrete logarithm problem by taking into account recent
developments. Then we present the state of the art of hyperelliptic
curve cryptography and discuss other curve cryptosystems.
Time-permitting, we talk about an application of the Weil descent
methodology and its effects on elliptic curve cryptography.

Unless otherwise noted, the security seminar is held on Wednesdays at 4:30P.M. STEW G52 (Suite 050B), West Lafayette Campus. More information...
