Dan Boneh (/bˈn/; Hebrew: דן בונה‎) is a teacher and researcher in applied cryptography and computer security.

Biography[edit]

Born in Israel in 1969, Boneh obtained his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Princeton University in 1996 under the supervision of Richard J. Lipton.[1][2]

Boneh is one of the principal contributors to the development of pairing-based cryptography from the Weil Pairing, along with Matt Franklin of the University of California, Davis.[3] He joined the faculty of Stanford University in 1997, and became professor of computer science and electrical engineering.[4][5] He teaches massive open online courses on the online learning platform Coursera.[6] In 1999 he was awarded a fellowship from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.[7] In 2002, he co-founded a company called Voltage Security with three of his students.[8] The company was acquired by Hewlett Packard in 2015.[9][10]

The Association for Computing Machinery awarded him the ACM-Infosys Foundation award in 2014, and he became a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery in 2016.[11][12]

Some of Boneh's results in cryptography include:

  • 2015: Privacy-preserving proofs of solvency for Bitcoin exchanges[13]
  • 2010: Efficient Identity-Based Encryption from Learning with Errors Assumption (with Shweta Agrawal and Xavier Boyen)[14]
  • 2010: He was involved in designing tcpcrypt, TCP extensions for transport-level security[15][16]
  • 2005: A partially homomorphic cryptosystem (with Eu-Jin Goh and Kobbi Nissim) [17]
  • 2005: The first broadcast encryption system with full collision 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.[18]
  • 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: Collision 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."[19]
  • 2005: PwdHash a browser extension that transparently produces a different password for each site[20][21]
