Theoretical Cryptography

Please note that the posts in this blog assume readers are familiar with materials from the following two readings:

  1. UCLA CS 282A Notes by Rafail Ostrovsky
  2. Foundations of Cryptography Volume 1 and 2 by Oded Goldreich

If you have trouble understanding any concept, just search it following above order (search 1; if not in 1, search 2). Note that Rafi’s notes contain more topics towards current research, while Goldreich’s books contain more detailed explanations on classic topics.
