Lightning Talk with d24n: Introduction to Lattices

Cryptography is quickly becoming one of the hottest technical fields as it provides the tools used on blockchains to guarantee privacy as well as security (even in non-blockchain scenarios). One of the strongest trends in crypto today, is the use of lattice tools to build new cryptosystems that provide security strong enough to resist attacks from quantum computers. This lighting talk will give you a brief introduction to lattices, and demo the use of lattice reduction in a cryptanalytic attack.
