Dan Boneh (//; Hebrew: דן בונה) is a researcher in applied cryptography and computer security. He is a Professor of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. He teaches three massive open online courses on the online learning platform Coursera, namely Computer Security, Cryptography I and Cryptography II.
Some of Boneh's achievements in cryptography include:
- 2010 He was involved in designing tcpcrypt, TCP extensions for transport-level security
- 2005 The first broadcast encryption system with full collusion resistance (with Craig Gentry and Brent Waters)
- 2003 A timing attack on OpenSSL (with David Brumley)
- 2001 An efficient identity-based encryption system (with Matt Franklin) based on the Weil pairing.
- 1999 Cryptanalysis of RSA when the private key is less than N0.292 (with Glenn Durfee)
- 1997 Fault-based cryptanalysis of public-key systems (with Richard J. Lipton and Richard DeMillo)
- 1995 Collusion resistant fingerprinting codes for digital data (with James Shaw)
- 1995 Cryptanalysis using a DNA computer (with Christopher Dunworth and Richard J. Lipton)
Some of his contributions in computer security include:
- 2007 "Show[ing] that the time web sites take to respond to HTTP requests can leak private information."
- 2005 PwdHash a browser extension that transparently produces a different password for each site
Boneh has received a number of awards, including the following:
- The Packard Award
- Sloan Research Fellowship
- the Terman Award
- 2005 RSA Award
- Gödel Prize, 2013, with Matthew K. Franklin and Antoine Joux, for his work on the Boneh–Franklin scheme
