palestra: Elliptic Curves: from magic to Goldilocks
Elliptic curve cryptography is one of the most important things we use in our everyday life when we surf the internet. Yet, their origins are far more distant than what they are used for today. On this talk we will find out from where elliptic curves come and how they are used today.
From being just an intellectual curiosity, elliptic curves are now one of the most practical things on the internet. On this talk we will discuss their origins with Diophantus and how they are used today in messaging protocols like OTRv4.
