Science of Information Seminar: Secure Non-interactive Simulation by Hemanta K. Maji

Wednesday, March 23, 2022, 2-3 PM

Title: Secure Non-interactive Simulation 

Abstract: Motivated by applications in secure computation, we introduce secure non-interactive simulation (SNIS). SNIS is the cryptographic extension of non-interactive simulation in information theory. SNIS allows parties to non-interactively and securely transform their samples from a source of correlated private randomness into samples of a different target correlation. 

This talk lays the theoretical foundations for SNIS research and, in this context, discusses tight feasibility, rate, and capacity results for some fundamental correlations. 

Bio: Hemanta Maji is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Purdue University. Dr. Maji received his doctorate in computer science from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was a Computing Innovations Fellow from 2011-2013, and then joined the Center for Encrypted Functionalities at UCLA as a Research Fellow prior to joining the faculty at Purdue. Dr. Maji is interested in cryptography and algorithms; with special emphasis on secure computation and information-theoretic cryptography. Hemanta K. Maji's Faculty Page
