All face-to-face university-sponsored events and gatherings hosted at TU are canceled through the end of the spring 2020 term. A number of events are offered virtually.
Speaker: Dr. Samuel S. Gross
Mathematician and Cryptographer at Noblis, Inc.
Abstract: We will discuss the recent computation resulting in the factorization of the RSA230 challenge number in August 2018, as well as even more recent factoring records. A connection between the composite number above and factoring methods will also be discussed. Time permitting, we shall discuss some possible futures for strong encryption in a post-quantum world.
The speaker will bring along a junior colleague and they both are willing and able to talk with students about working at Noblis, and in their industry in general. Please encourage your students to attend the talk and feel free to set up something either formal or informal for your students who are interested.
