Abstract: Imagine there’s no block ciphers, it’s easy if you try:-) A (cryptographic) permutation can be thought of as a block cipher (like AES or DES) without a key (or with a fixed key if you prefer). During the SHA-3 competition it became clear that permutation-based hashing, e.g., by using the sponge construction, is superior ... Read more about "Innovations in permutation-based crypto"

Abstract: For my entire career, I’ve been obsessed with definitions. In this informal talk, I’ll describe the latest two I’ve worked on. The first is called IND|C, indistinguishability up to correctness. Given games G and H and a correctness condition C, we define an advantage measure Adv^indc_{G,H,C} wherein G/H distinguishing attacks are effaced, generically and ...

The bacterial flagellar motor is the most complex rotary motor identified in biology. A central transmembrane rotor spins at up to 1300Hz against a ring of ion translocating stators attached to the cell wall, rotating an external helical flagellum to push the bacterium forward. The evolutionally related T3SS used the equivalent of the rotor to ...

It has long been suggested that failure appropriately to inhibit impulses stems from a deficit in prefrontal cortical inhibitory function. Here it will be suggested that impulsivity, which predicts the vulnerability to develop addiction to stimulant drugs as well as compulsive behaviours as observed in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and early onset Parkinson’s Disease, also stems ...

Modular forms and their generalizations are one of the most central concepts in number theory. It took almost 200 years to cultivate the mathematics lying behind the classical (i.e. scalar) modular forms. All of the famous modular forms (e.g. Dedekind eta function) involve a multiplier, this multiplier is a 1-dimensional representation of the underlying group. ...

Graph signal processing (GSP) is an active area of research that seeks to extend to signals defined on irregular graphs tools concepts such as frequency, filtering and sampling that are well understood for conventional signals defined on regular grids. As an example this leads to the definition of so called, graph Fourier transforms (GFTs). In ...
