  • White-box implementation of the identity-based signature scheme in the IEEE P1363 standard for public key cryptography 

    Choo, Kim-Kwang Raymond (Volume 103, Issue 2;, 2020-02-01)
    Unlike black-box cryptography, an adversary in a white-box security model has full access to the implementation of the crypto-graphic algorithm. Thus, white-box implementation of cryptographic algorithms is more practical. ...
  • On Clustering to Minimize the Sum of Radii 

    Gibson, Matthew (2012)
    Given an n-point metric (P,d) and an integer k > 0, we consider the problem of covering P by k balls so as to minimize the sum of the radii of the balls. We present a randomized algorithm that runs in nO(log n·log ) time ...
