Title: Constructions of Cryptographically Significant Boolean Functions

Speaker: Dr. Sumanta Sarkar, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Abstract:A Boolean function is a mapping from the set of all binary n-tuples to the set {0, 1}. Boolean functions are important building blocks in designing secure cryptosystems known as the symmetric key cryptosystems. Over the last few decades, a lot of research has been done on Boolean function for its applications in cryptography. In this talk, I will demonstrate my contributions in the literature of cryptographically significant Boolean functions. .
