How to Hide Secrets in Software | 10th Anniversary Symposium

In our SimonsTV corner this summer, we're sharing some of our favorite talks from our 10th Anniversary Symposium, which was held in Berkeley at the end of May.

Prasad Raghavendra writes, "Rachel Lin gave a wonderful survey of indistinguishability obfuscation — a cryptographic primitive whose goal is to encrypt a program so as to hide everything but its functionality. She showed why indistinguishability obfuscation is one of the holy grails as far as cryptographic primitives go, and how it has transformed the landscape of cryptography in a very short time."
