Smooth Projective Hash Function (SPHF), also known as hash proof system, is a useful cryptographic tool for constructing many security systems and protocols. In this presentation, we introduce several new variants of SPHF and their applications in protecting secure communications, including cryptographic reverse firewalls for resisting hardware/software subversion attacks and secure authentication and key agreement protocols resilient to key leakage and weak randomness.
Dr. Guomin Yang is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Computing and Information Technology, University of Wollongong (UOW), Australia. He was admitted to the Mathematics Department of Fudan University in 1999, and moved to City University of Hong Kong in 2000 after being awarded the Hong Kong Jockey Club Scholarship. He received the Bachelor, Master and PhD degrees in Computer Science from City University of Hong Kong in 2004, 2006 and 2009, respectively. In 2007, as one of eight awardees around the world, he received the (ISC)2 information security scholarship from the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium. Before joining UOW in 2012, he was a Research Scientist at the Temasek Laboratories, National University of Singapore. Dr. Yang’s research interests are applied cryptography and network security. He has published over 100 research papers that appeared at many highly respected venues such as ACM Transactions on Information and System Security, IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security, CRYPTO, ASIACRYPT, INFOCOM, etc. His Web of Science H-index is 15. He is on the editorial board of Theoretical Computer Science (Elsevier) and an IEEE senior member. In 2015, he received the Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award.
