COPERNICUS FESTIVAL, May 6-11, 2014, Kraków
http://www.copernicusfestival.com
This is the story of why and how the first computers came into being. They were built to assist British codebreaking during World War II, specifically to make possible automated codebreaking of the German teleprinter codes which the British called "Tunny". The story of Tunny is much less well-known than that of the Enigma machines. The General report on "Tunny" was published only in 2000 and some parts of the Tunny story are still classified. It has less Polish connection than Enigma, where three Polish mathematicians played a crucial role by breaking a pre-war version of the Enigma machine: Marian Rejewski, Henryk Zygalski and Jerzy Jerzy Różycki.
Like Enigma (where the UK built on the Polish work), the Tunny codes were broken by mathematicians at Bletchley Park, the wartime home of the UK's "Government Code and Cipher School". During the war Bletchley Park was called "Government Communications Headquarters" (GCHQ), so as to give only a vague idea of its purpose. After the war, that became the official name of the UK Government's signals intelligence agency.
Because the messages were of high strategic value, the breaking of Tunny was very successful although it decrypted many fewer messages than from Enigma. (27631 Tunny messages were intercepted and 13508 were broken.) As examples, Bletchley decrypted messages direct from Hitler himself in 1944, allowed the British to forewarn the Russians of the German attack around Kursk in July 1943, gave the Allies the German dispositions before D-Day, and showed them the value of the rather slow Italian campaign in tying down German forces.
Colossus - machine used for breaking Tunny code - deserves to be called the first computer, although it was not a general purpose computer, but a special purpose cryptographic device. So one has to choose qualifying adjectives a bit carefully. (Many histories say the American ENIAC was the first computer. This just reflects the British ability to keep a secret). Not all features of later machines were present in Colossus: for example it did not have electronically stored programs. But many were: for example, Tommy Flowers introduced the term Arithmetic-Logic Unit (ALU) for the core processing parts and Jack Good's experience with it led him to develop the idea of microprogramming. There is also an interesting comparison of Colossus with the first generation IBM PC.
Its first break of a message was on 5 February 1944. By the end of the war there were 10 Colossi. At the end of the war Churchill ordered the destruction of the Colossi. All but two Colossi were broken up and designs destroyed. The remaining two are alleged to have been kept in case the Russians started to use captured German Tunny machines: those Colossi were destroyed around 1960. Information about the machines' existence only emerged in the 1970s due to Brian Randell in particular. Photos were released in 1975, and Flowers was allowed to publish the hardware design of the first Colossus in 1983 (without the explanation of what it was used for). In 1996 the US published the information it had about the machines and, due to Donald Michie, the "General report on Tunny" was published in June 2000. The general report on the Testery's work is still classified. There is a working reconstructed Colossus at Bletchley Park, built by Tony Sale and a team of volunteers.

44CON Information Security Conference

The computational complexity of finding Nash Equilibria in games has received much attention over the past two decades due to its theoretical and philosophical significance. This talk will be centered around the connection between this problem and cryptography. Mostly, I will discuss a result proving that finding Nash equilibrium is hard, assuming the existence of a cryptographic notion called indistinguishability obfuscation. This is done by demonstrating that this cryptographic notion gives rise to a hard computational problem in the complexity class PPAD, for which finding Nash equilibrium is known to be complete. Indeed, in recent years indistinguishability obfuscation has turned out to have surprisingly strong implications in cryptography and beyond. I will give the high-level picture as to where we stand in our efforts of constructing such obfuscators and basing them on solid hardness assumptions. In a companion talk on Tuesday, I will discuss one specific line of work that reduces indistinguishability obfuscation to simple assumptions on 5-linear maps, coming closer to well-studied cryptographic objects such as bilinear-map groups. The talk is based on joint work with Paneth and Rosen. No prior knowledge in cryptography is required.

adventures in the free state

Abstract. In this paper, we initiate a study of zero knowledge proof systems in the presence of side-channel attacks. Specifically, we consider a setting where a cheating verifier is allowed to obtain arbitrary bounded leakage on the entire state (including the witness and the random coins) of the prover during the entire protocol execution. We formalize a meaningful definition of leakage-resilient zero knowledge (LR-ZK) proof system, that intuitively guarantees that the protocol does not yield anything beyond the validity of the statement and the leakage obtained by the verifier.
We give a construction of LR-ZK interactive proof system based on standard general assumptions. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first instance of a cryptographic interactive protocol where the adversary is allowed to perform leakage attacks during the protocol execution on the entire state of honest party (in contrast, prior work only considered leakage prior to the protocol execution, or very limited leakage during the protocol execution). Next, we give an LR-NIZK proof system based on standard number-theoretic assumptions.
Finally, we demonstrate the usefulness of our notions by giving two concrete applications:
We initiate a new line of research to relax the assumption on the "tamper-proofness" of hardware tokens used in the design of various cryptographic protocols. In particular, we give a construction of a universally composable multiparty computation protocol in the leaky token model (where an adversary in possession of a token is allowed to obtain arbitrary bounded leakage on the entire state of the token) based on standard general assumptions.
Next, we give simple, generic constructions of fully leakage-resilient signatures in the bounded leakage model as well as the continual leakage model. Unlike the recent constructions of such schemes, we also obtain security in the "noisy leakage" model.

Applying Recreational Mathematics to Secure Multiparty Computation
Yvo Desmedt, University College, London
The problem of a mice traveling through a maze is well known. The maze can be represented using a planar graph. We present a variant of the maze. We consider a grid vertex colored planar graph in which an adversary can choose up to t colors and remove all vertices that have these colors and their adjacent edges. We call the grid in which these vertices and adjacent edges are removed a reduced grid. The problem is that a mice must be able to move in the reduced grid from the first row to the last row, and from the first column to the last column, and this for all possible reductions. We present three types of solutions to construct such grids. The efficiency of these solutions is discussed.The problem finds its origin in the problem of secure multipartycomputation. Imagine going to a medical doctor in Iraq who needs to prescribe some medication, which might be counterindicated. The typical solution is to disclose all medical records to the doctor. If secure multiparty computation would be used, the medical doctor in Iraq only learns from the distributedmedical databases whether the medication is, or is not, counterindicated. We consider the problem of parties each having a secret belonging to a non-abelian group. The parties want to compute the product of these secrets without leaking anything that does not follow trivially from the product. Oursolution is black box, i.e., independent of the non-abelian group. This has applications to threshold block ciphers and post-quantum cryptography.

When a client outsources a job to a third party (e.g., the cloud), how can the client check the result, without re-executing the computation? Recent work in proof-based verifiable computation has made significant progress on this problem by incorporating deep results from complexity theory and cryptography into built systems. However, these systems work within a stateless model: they exclude computations that interact with RAM or a disk, or for which the client does not have the full input.
This paper describes Pantry, a built system that overcomes these limitations. Pantry composes proof-based verifiable computation with untrusted storage: the client expresses its computation in terms of digests that attest to state, and verifiably outsources that computation. Using Pantry, we extend verifiability to MapReduce jobs, simple database queries, and interactions with private state. Thus, Pantry takes another step toward practical proof-based verifiable computation for realistic applications.

Time: Thursday, December 13, 2012 15.00 -- 17.00.
Location: VIASM Lecture Hall (C02).
Speaker: Prof. N. Koblitz (University of Washington).
Language: English.
Abstract:
As mathematics becomes used more widely to analyze data and to model both social and scientific problems, it becomes important to critically analyze such uses of mathematics. Sometimes the most valuable service that a mathematician can perform is to educate the public about the limitations of mathematical modeling and data analysis about what mathematics cannot do.
I will give some examples from my own experience, and will describe the failure of a mathematical model of a "provably secure digital signature".
I will also describe a very different sense in which models of mathematical thinking can be extremely valuable to society. This is a sense that comes from theoretical as well as applied mathematics and has more to do with a culture of rigorous thought and freedom from bias than with any direct use of mathematics to model the important unsolved problems that society is faced with.

Underscoring the seriousness of the undertaking, ASX recently produced an 87-page progress report. Roll-out is targeted for late 2020 or early 2021. In the weeds. The enormity of such a project may not be obvious to those unfamiliar with the creaky plumbing of the capital markets. At the completion of phase one, DTCC will have nodes set up internally for every firm that it knows will run one, plus some general nodes that will take care of supporting the transactions and processing for the firms that do not wish to support a node of their own. For this project, DTCC has taken a multi-vendor approach. Ethereum-inspired startup Axoni is providing the technology, with IBM helping to manage the project, and R3 providing best practice guidance on areas like selecting the right data models. Luxembourg is the largest fund management hub outside of the U.S. The jurisdiction holds many trillions of dollars worth of assets under management. The KPMG-led project includes banks like BNP Paribas, Credit Agricole and others, as well as over 400 asset managers. The technology used is ethereum-based Quorum, the popular open-source project run by JP Morgan.
