In this talk, I will describe some of the advanced systems that I have designed which include traceable encryption, program obfuscation, aggregatable signatures, decentralized proof systems, and multi-user encryption systems. I will focus on my work in building advanced encryption systems that solved the 25-year-old open problem of traitor tracing. Traitor tracing has great practical impact in protecting from insider corruption and providing accountability as well as in many other areas such as differential privacy, software watermarking and leasing, and quantum copy protection. I will introduce new techniques and abstractions in lattice-based cryptography to prove post-quantum security of such advanced encryption systems.
Finally, I will talk about the broader impact of advanced cryptography in influencing public policy and law, and discuss my research vision.
