Adam, Aloni, Justin, and I will be teaching a class in "Advanced Topics
in the Theory of Cryptography" this fall. We'd appreciate it if you
would pass on the info to potentially interested people at BU.
This course will cover a variety of topics in cryptography that are
often not included in an introductory course. Topics will include
multi-party computation, delegation of computation, homomorphic
encryption, functional encryption, and obfuscation, in addition to a
number of topics in the foundations of cryptography. Though in some
respects a sequel to 6.875, this course will be self contained and
should be accessible to a student with a background in theoretical
computer science or sufficient mathematical maturity.
