Cryptography and cyber-security at NTNU and the mathematics of electronic elections.

(by Kristian Gjøsteen, Professor at NTNU) Cryptography as a practice is very old, dating back at least 2000 years. The birth of modern cryptography can reasonably be set to 1976, when Diffie and Hellman published their seminal paper «New directions in cryptography» containing the first protocol to allow Alice and Bob to communicate securely without first […]
