Professor Jingqiang Lin was invited to give a talk in Room #402 in Mingli Builiding of the school on Jun 21, 2018. The title of his talk is “Application of Cryptography in Computer and Network Systems” . The talk was hosted by Professor Futai Zhang.
In his talk, Prof. Lin introduced and discusses several significant issues that need to be considered in the application of cryptography in computer and network systems, including: work mode, algorithm and key selection, random number generation, security protocol, relationship of key and entity, key security, access control of cryptographic computing, etc.
Cryptography is a significant foundation technique for cyberspace security. Compared with other security technologies, cryptography has a more rigorous security model and theoretical system, and more rigorous logical derivation. Therefore, the application of cryptography in computer and network systems are routinely expected to bring significant and quantifiable security improvements. However, the security application of cryptography is not good enough from a practical point of view.
After the talk, Prof. Lin discussed with the audiences and answered their questions kindly. The audiences got much inspiration from the talk and the discussion.
