Modern Cryptography and Digital Identity Protection
The presentation deals with the modern cryptographic methods for digital identity verification and their implementation aspects. We will cover the standard methods of authentication (password-based, signature-based), as well as novel methods with strong privacy protection (anonymous credentials). We will show examples of cryptographic protocols and discuss their strengths and weaknesses.
