London Crypto Festival

19 December 2013

I had the opportunity to speak as part of a panel at the London Crypto Festival on November 30th 2013. My main point was that we have not one, but many ways to protect privacy in on-line services. Therefore consumers and citizens should demand from their service and software providers strong protections for their privacy, and come to expect them. The examples I used are from what I know best, namely smart metering privacy for which we have proposed in the past very credible protocols for privacy friendly billing and statistics.

My Crypto Party Presentation can be found here.

I was very honored to be invited to Asiacrypt 2013 to present some of our work on privacy-friendly computations. It was an opportunity to consolidate a presentation that includes an overview of privacy-friendly billing and aggregation for smart metering. The slides of the presentation are available in Powerpoint 2012 format (and an older ppt format).

The key references providing more technical details on smart-metering privacy are:
