Title: A Brief Introduction to White-box Cryptography
Abstract: White-box cryptography aims to protect the secrets corresponding to cryptographic implementations from an attacker that has full access to the underlying executable codes. Precisely, white-box cryptography is a special obfuscation technique used for implementations executed on open devices such as smartphones, tablets, PCs where the developer wants to get rid of hardware secure elements to store secret information. In this talk, we cover the basics of obfuscation and white-box cryptography.
