Charlotte Scott Centre for Algebra

On Wednesday the 14th of November 2018, **Prof. Simon Blackburn** (Royal Holloway, University of London) visited the Charlotte Scott Centre for Algebra in Lincoln and gave a talk “*Cryptography using Group Theory*”.

Abstract: “Over the past 20 years, there have been frequent proposals to use group-theoretic techniques in the design of cryptosystems. I will provide a brief introduction to the area, and I will talk about some of the techniques that can be used to attack some of these schemes. I will assume no knowledge of cryptography (and very little group theory is needed).”
