at the Weizmann Institute of Science
THIS PAGE IS NO LONGER UPDATED.
The Foundations of Cryptography are
the paradigms, approaches and techniques
used to conceptualize, define and provide
solutions to natural Cryptographic problems.
Consequently, research in this area includes:
- The study of known paradigms (resp. approaches and techniques),
directed towards a better understanding and utilization of the latter.
- Discovery of new paradigms (resp. approaches and techniques)
that overcome inherent (or seemingly inherent) limitations of the
- Formulation of new cryptographic problems
and treating them using known or new paradigms (resp. approaches
The list of faculty members that are actively interested in
the Foundations of Cryptography includes
and Adi Shamir.
