Teilnehmer: Tim Pritlove (Moderation), Whitfield Diffie

Tim Pritlove interviews Whitfield Diffie, one of the fathers of public-key cryptography 30 years after his and his colleagues' revolutionary discovery of the so-called Diffie-Hellman key exchange method that deeply revolutionized the field of computing and computer security. Whitfield explains the discovery of the algorithm, his relationships to copyright and patent law, the birth of the public-key cryptography community. Whitfield proceeds to discuss current challenges in the area of network security, trust management and privacy problems. He goes forward to explain his view on the history and meaning of the word "hack". He also explains what kind of encryption he uses for personal communication, how encryption should be handled and what the future has in store for cryptographic research.
