SPEAKER: Chaya Ganesh NYU TITLE: Securing Circuits Against Constant-Rate Tampering ABSTRACT: I will present the result of Dana Dachman-Soled and Yael Tauman Kalai from Crypto 2012. They give the construction of a compiler that converts any circuit into one that remains secure even if a constant fraction of its wires are tampered with. The paper considers adversaries who may choose an arbitrary set of wires to corrupt, and may set each such wire to 0 or to 1, or may toggle with the wire. Such adversaries, who continuously tamper with the circuit, can learn at most logarithmically many bits of secret information. The results in this paper are information theoretic.
