CyLab, Carnegie Mellon University’s security and privacy research institute, has invited computer science professor Amit Sahai to give a Distinguished Seminar on his work on general-purpose program obfuscation, as part of their CyLab Distinguished Seminar Series.

The goal of general-purpose program obfuscation is to make an arbitrary computer program “unintelligible” while preserving its functionality. Obfuscation allows us to achieve a powerful capability: software that can keep a secret. This talk will cover recent advances in obfuscation research, yielding constructions of general-purpose obfuscation mechanisms based on mathematical structures.
