Providing Sound Foundations for Cryptography: On the work of Shafi Goldwasser and Silvio Micali
Edited by Oded Goldreich, Weizmann Institute of Science
Another book in the Turing Award series, this book celebrates the seminal works in cryptography which were the basis for bestowing the 2012 A.M. Turing Award upon Shafi Goldwasser and Silvio Micali. A significant portion of this book reproduces some of these works, and another portion consists of scientific perspectives by some of their former students. The highlight of the book is provided by a few chapters that allow the readers to meet Shafi and Silvio in person. These include interviews with them, their biographies and their Turing Award lectures.
