   With the prospect of increasing amounts of data being collected by a
> proliferation of internet connected devices, and the task of organizing,
> storing, and accessing such data looming, we face the challenge of how to
> leverage the power of the cloud running in our data centers to make
> information accessible in a secure and privacy-preserving manner.  For many
> scenarios, in other words, we would like to have a public cloud which we can
> trust with our private data, and yet we would like to have that data still
> be accessible to us in an organized and useful way.  This is especially
> important for sensitive data such as medical or financial records.  This
> talk will highlight emerging cryptographic techniques which can help to
> secure the cloud.  New solutions for searchable encryption and fully
> homomorphic encryption are becoming more efficient and provide the
> foundation for cloud storage and services on encrypted data.
>
>
> This talk will cover various joint work with Seny Kamara, Vinod
> Vaikuntanathan, and Michael Naehrig.

  Kristin Lauter is a Principal Researcher and Manager of the Cryptography
> Group at Microsoft Research in Redmond, Washington. Lauter received her BA,
> MS, and PhD, all in mathematics, from the University of Chicago, in 1990,
> 1991, and 1996, respectively. She was T.H. Hildebrandt Assistant Professor
> of Mathematics at the University of Michigan (1996-1999), visiting scholar
> at Max Planck Institut fur Mathematik in Bonn, Germany (1997), and at
> Institut de Mathematiques Luminy in France (1999). In 2008, Lauter, together
> with her coauthors, was awarded the Selfridge Prize in Computational Number
> Theory.  Her work currently focuses on Elliptic Curve Cryptography and
> extensions with applications to cloud security and privacy of Electronic
> Medical Records.
