Dr. Whitfield Diffie is a US cryptographer, known for presenting an entirely new method of exchanging private cryptographic keys over a public network, solving the key exchange issue of cryptography. Dr. Diffie's breakthrough allowed the immediate development of asymmetric key algorithms.
In this episode, Mr. Pasdar and Dr. Diffie discuss the beginnings of public key cryptography, which now underlies the security of Internet commerce. It allows any two computers to agree on a secret language with which to share private messages via an insecure channel. Dr. Diffie goes in depth in this interview to describe the challenges, collaborations and scope of his work. The viewer gets a rare insight into the formulation of such an important process that still has a major global impact today. Dr. Diffie shares personal anecdotes that brings you along with him on his breakthrough journey.
