Description: Cryptographers use hard problems to construct unbreakable encryption schemes, pseudorandom number generators and more. A typical example is the factoring of large numbers, i.e., we learn in primary school how to multiply numbers, but given a large number, even supercomputers struggle to take it apart into its prime factors. In the talk, we will see the diversity of hard problems that are candidates for secure cryptography, ranging from factoring to sudoku. About the speaker: Christopher Brzuska is a faculty…

Description: Every day, hundreds of people fly on airline tickets that have been obtained fraudulently, and much of this is facilitated by cybercrime. I will use this example to explore cybercrime in more depth, and understand its real-world impacts.  I will explore the trade in these tickets, drawing on interviews with industry and law enforcement, and an analysis of an online blackmarket. Tickets are purchased by complicit travellers or resellers from the online blackmarket. Victim travellers obtain tickets from fake travel…

Description: Cryptocurrencies and blockchains are the most widely publicized applications of cryptography today. Using the example of Bitcoin, we will aim to understand the cryptographic building blocks of cryptocurrencies and how they fit together to enable a distributed payment system. We will then explore why newer cryptocurrencies built on Bitcoin employ more advanced cryptography. In particular we will examine the contentious issue of anonymous payments. Finally we will discuss the concept of smart contracts, how they can be achieved using blockchains,…

HAIC Talk: 5th Generation Crime-fighting in Cyberspace: Lawful Intercept in 5G Networks – with Mats Näslund

October 6 @ 17:00 - 18:30
Online event

Description: Our societies have been prospering, much due to huge technological advances over the last 100 years. Unfortunately, criminal activity has in many cases also been able to draw benefits from these advances. Communication technology, such as the Internet and mobile phones, are today “tools-of-the-trade” that are used to plan, execute, and even hide crimes such as fraud, espionage, terrorism, child abuse, to mention just a few. Almost all countries have regulated how law enforcement, in order to prevent or investigate…
