[svlug-announce] REMINDER> SVLUG meeting tonight (Wed): Marty Hellman (cryptography)
Wed Nov 7 09:12:01 2001
We're pleased to announce the next meeting of SVLUG, this evening (Wednesday).
Wednesday, 7 November, 7pm-9pm or so.
Martin E. Hellman
Professor Emeritus of Electrical Engineering
In his 1976 paper that introduced public key cryptography
("New Directions in Cryptography"), Whit Diffie and Dr.
Hellman wrote: "We stand today on the brink of a revolution
in cryptography." As with most revolutions, there was also
an evolutionary process that culminated in the revolution.
That evolutionary process is easier to see in hindsight, and
will be the subject of this talk. The talk also gives credit
to some of the individuals whose work is often overlooked,
but whose contributions were clearer to those working
in the early days of the field.
Cisco Building 9.
