William Penney Theatre, AWE, Aldermaston, Reading, RG7 4PR

Speakers: Dr Richard Pinch

Traditional symmetric or secret key cryptography has historically been the province of government, diplomatic and military users with a requirement for confidentiality.
More recently asymmetric or public key cryptography has been developed and taken up to meet the requirements of life in cyberspace.
Private individuals are now using it, often unknowingly, to achieve confidentiality and authentication.
In this talk we describe how some of these requirements are met, and in particular how to reduce the need for an elaborate infrastructure.
Car park near the William Penney theatre.
The theatre entrance can be found on the A340 Basingstoke to Newbury road, just before the Heath End Roundabout at Tadley.
Tea/Coffee and Biscuits will be served from 7pm. The lecture is open to all, including non-members.
