Hristo Bojinov: 2012 Security Workshop

"Neuroscience Meets Cryptography: Implicit Credential Learning"
11:15am - 11:45am


Coercing users to disclose their credentials (a.k.a. rubber-hose attacks) has been the bane of classic cryptography. We discuss our ongoing work on designing coercion-resistant security primitives based on implicit learning. We present our current results as well as experimental setup using Amazon's Mechanical Turk service. We also map out directions for future work that we plan to pursue.
