The Prague Computer Science seminar series, coorganized by Department of Computer Science, presents:

Secrecy amplification in partially compromised networks  by Václav Matyáš

Thursday, March 26 at 4 p.m. in Auditorium S5, MFF UK (Malostranské nám. 25, Praha 1)

Lecture anotation:

Distribution of cryptographic keys is a cornerstone to most ICT security solutions. Usage of various key (pre-)distribution schemes in networks with an active attacker results in a partially compromised network where some fraction of keys used to protect link communication is known to the attacker.
