Venue: Lecture Hall, Office Building, Software Campus
Abstract: This talk contains two parts: one is a technical work that can enable a systematic designing of a secure cloud storage protocol from any secure network coding protocol; the other is a general discussion of my PhD research projects.
For the first part, I will describe a systematic way to design a secure cloud storage protocol based on any secure network coding protocol. Then, I discuss the security of the systematic design strictly. Later, I will also show how to extend the systematic design to support more yet useful functionalities.
For the second part, I will talk about my research projects I have worked on in the past years, mainly on public-key cryptography and cloud security. I will focus on introducing the research problems and presenting some ideas to conquer these problems. These projects could also serve as potential research problems for master or PhD students.
Bio: Fei Chen is a PhD candidate in The Chinese University of Hong Kong. He obtained his Bachelor and Master degrees from Chongqing University in 2008 and 2011, respectively.
