Ivan Ivanov on Examples in Cryptography with OpenSSL

6:45 pm, Suspenders Restaurant
111 Broadway in Manhattan

OpenSSL is an ubiquitious SSL/TLS implementation and cryptography 
toolkit. It is widely used to manipulate keys and certificates for 
servers and clients and there are a lot of tutorials on how to use it 
from the command line.

This presentation attempts to go deeper into OpenSSL`s library and give 
an overview of its API. It will show how to programmatically calculate 
one-way hashes, perform symmetric and asymmetric encryption and create 
and verify message authentication codes and digital signatures. The 
concrete examples will include DES and AES ciphers, RSA and DSA 
encryption and decryption, Diffie-Hellman key exchange and a simple 
SSL-enabled application. Some particular algorithms can also be 
described in more details along with their mathematical properties if 
time permits but the presentation will be mostly example-driven.

Ivan Ivanov is a software developer currently based in New York. His 
interest in cryptography comes from his mathematical education. In his 
professional work he has developed encryption and decryption routines 
for protecting data transmission over the network.

September 1: Bruno Scap and Building Email Infrastructure
