Have you ever used the internet, a cell phone, or done online shopping? Then you have used cryptography. Join Senior Sara Reidler as she provides a look into the mechanics of these security processes. These seminars are open to anyone with an interest in Math topics.  

The Code to Life
by Sara Reidler
Thursday, September 19 
1:40 - 2:30
in PTC 324


Abstract: Have you ever used the internet, a cell phone, or done online shopping? Then you have used cryptography to get information from one location to another without someone in the middle reading the information. Cryptography is the science of the hidden message, often called “secret writing.” To encrypt your message both the sender and receiver use the same key. This talk will use group theory to explain the process of the Diffie-Hellman key exchange and help us understand why no one can intercept the key in the middle.
