Abstract:Multicast communication enables the distribution of digital content from a single source to a large audience via a public channel such as the Internet. Broadcasting has applications in sensor networks, pay-TV, software updates and military defence systems to name a few. As these applications will distribute private or sensitive information, multicast protocols must provide data origin authentication.
Christophe Tartary obtained a Master in Cryptography from University of Limoges, France (2001). He was a PhD candidate within the Department of Computing at Macquarie University (Australia) until August 2007 where he studied authentication protocols for stream authentication. He then joined the Division of Mathematical Sciences at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) and the Institute for Theoretical Computer Science at Tsinghua University (China) as a research fellow. His research interests include cryptography, multicast security and coding theory.
