Speaker: Lattie Reddoch ’17 (Department of Defense)
Abstract: Cryptography, simply defined as the effort to covertly transfer data, has been actively used from the Roman empire through the present day to ensure the privacy and security of communications. This presentation is intended to showcase a broad overview of the many current and historical uses of cryptography, with a more thorough mathematical explanation of the infamous machine that bridged the gap between ancient and modern cryptography: the Enigma. Cryptography is in the news almost every day, whether in the political arena, corporate cybersecurity, or national intelligence, and it is a significant part of the modern world. Come discover why cryptography has remained prominent throughout humankind’s development!
Refreshments will be available before the talk at 2:00pm in the Mathematics office suite, Riley 205.
