Eurocrypt
Best paper award for IST Austria Cryptographers and their collaborators
Postdoc Joël Alwen and Professor Krzysztof Pietrzak--together with their US collaborators--have been awarded the best paper award at the Eurocrypt '17 conference. Their prize-winning work proves the existence of 'memory-hard' functions, cryptographic functions that are designed to be "egalitarian" in the sense that they can't be computed at lower cost on dedicated hardware as compared to standard CPUs. These functions are crucial to securing password servers and have applications in decentralized cryptocurrencies.
