Exploring cool crypto concepts

Mimble Wimble. Schnorr Signatures. Zero Knowledge Proofs. Scriptless scripts. Diffie-Hellman key exchange. Some of the stuff I ran into when I was trying to understand more advanced concepts used in blockchain implementations. I was impressed with the cool tricks you can do with it.

In my attempt to understand all this I learned lots about modern encryption and I look forward to share this with you!

Warning: I’m not a mathematician, expect a fun talk that gives an overview of what you can do with these techniques. Also outside of blockchain off course!

History of encryption techniques
– 100% safe encryption
– Semantic security
– Stream Ciphers / Block Cipher & PRG’s
– Diffie-Hellman key exchange
– Advanced concepts like Zero knowledge Proof & Onion Routing
