As part of the Harvard University Science Center Lecture Series,
Michael O. Rabin, the T.J. Watson Sr. Professor of Computer Science
at Harvard University, lectures on hyper-encryption and provably everlasting
In this lecture, Professor Rabin confronts the failure of present-day computer systems to provide minimal network security.
As a solution, Professor Rabin presents the theory of hyper-encryption and attempts to prove its security against an adversary possessing
unlimited computer power. This hyper-encryption method provides secure data exchange even if the adversary mounts an adaptive attack and obtains
the secret decryption key. This program offers over an hour of video content and slides from the presentation.
