Title:  An Overview of Lattice Cryptography

Abstract:   Lattice-based cryptography is the use of (conjectured) hard lattice problems as the foundation for secure cryptographic constructions. Such cryptosystems have a number of attractive features, including apparent resistance to quantum computers, simple and highly parallel operations, security based on "worst-case" assumptions, and powerful functionality. This talk will give an overview of the area, focusing on the modern foundations and some basic cryptographic constructions. No previous background on lattices is required -- you only need to know how to add and multiply vectors and matrices.
