Foundations of cryptographya primer
by Oded Goldreich
(
Book
)
39 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Revolutionary developments which took place in the 1980's have transformed cryptography from a semiscientific discipline to a respectable field in theoretical Computer Science. In particular, concepts such as computational indistinguishability, pseudorandomness and zeroknowledge interactive proofs were introduced and classical notions as secure encryption and unforgeable signatures were placed on sound grounds. The resulting field of cryptography, reviewed in this survey, is strongly linked to complexity theory (in contrast to 'classical' cryptography which is strongly related to information theory)

P, NP, and NPcompleteness the basics of computational complexity
by Oded Goldreich
(
)
13 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide "The focus of this book is the PversusNP Question and the theory of NPcompleteness. It also provides adequate preliminaries regarding computational problems and computational models. The P versus NP Question asks whether or not finding solutions is harder than checking the correctness of solutions. An alternative formulation asks whether or not discovering proofs is harder than verifying their correctness. It is widely believed that the answer to these equivalent formulations is positive, and this is captured by saying that P is different from NP. Although the PversusNP Question remains unresolved, the theory of NPcompleteness offers evidence for the intractability of specific problems in NP by showing that they are universal for the entire class. Amazingly enough, NPcomplete problems exist, and hundreds of natural computational problems arising in many different areas of mathematics and science are NPcomplete"
Concurrent zeroknowledge
by Alon Rosen
(
)
6 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Protocols that remain zeroknowledge when many instances are executed concurrently are called concurrent zeroknowledge. Devoted to their study, this book presents constructions of concurrent zeroknowledge protocols, along with proofs. It also shows why "traditional" proof techniques are not suitable for establishing the protocol's property
Computational complexity : a conceptual perspective
by Oded Goldreich
(
Book
)
13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Complexity theory is a central field of the theoretical foundations of computer science, concerned with the general study of the intrinsic complexity of computational tasks. This book offers a conceptual perspective on complexity theory intended to serve as an introduction for advanced undergraduates and graduates

Modern cryptography, probabilistic proofs, and pseudorandomness
by Oded Goldreich
(
Book
)
10 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and German and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide The book focuses on three related areas in the theory of computation. The areas are modern cryptography, the study of probabilistic proof systems, and the theory of computational pseudorandomness. The common theme is the interplay between randomness and computation. The book offers an introduction and extensive survey to each of these areas, presenting both the basic notions and the most important (sometimes advanced) results. The presentation is focused on the essentials and does not elaborate on details. In some cases it offers a novel and illuminating perspective. The reader may obtain from the book 1. A clear view of what each of these areas is all above. 2. Knowledge of the basic important notions and results in each area. 3. New insights into each of these areas. It is believed that the book may thus be useful both to a beginner (who has only some background in the theory of computing), and an expert in any of these areas

A primer on pseudorandom generators
by Oded Goldreich
(
Book
)
8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide This primer surveys the theory of pseudorandomness, starting with the general paradigm, and discussing various incarnations while emphasizing the case of generalpurpose pseudorandom generators (withstanding any polynomialtime distinguisher). Additional topics include the "derandomization" of arbitrary probabilistic polynomialtime algorithms, pseudorandom generators withstanding spacebounded distinguishers, and serveral natural notions of specialpurpose pseudorandom generators

Foundations of cryptography
by Oded Goldreich
(
Book
)
11 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Cryptography is concerned with the conceptualization, definition, and construction of computing systems that address security concerns. The design of cryptographic systems must be based on firm foundations. This book presents a rigorous and systematic treatment of the foundational issues : defining cryptographic tasks and solving new cryptographic problems using existing tools. It focuses on the basic mathematical tools : computational difficulty (oneway functions), pseudorandomness, and zeroknowledge proofs. The emphasis is on the clarification of fundamental concepts and on demonstrating the feasibility of solving cryptographic problems rather than on describing ad hoc approaches.

Probabilistic proof systems : a primer
by Oded Goldreich
(
)
9 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Various types of probabilistic proof systems have played a central rolein the development of computer science in the last couple of decades. These proof systems deviate from the traditional concept of a proof by introducing randomization and interaction into the verification process. Probabilistic proof systems carry an error probability (which is explicitly bounded and can be decreased by repetitions), but they offer various advantages over deterministic proof systems. This primer concentrates on three types of probabilistic proof systems: interactive proofs, zeroknowledge proofs, and Probabilistically Checkable Proofs (PCP). Surveying the basic results regarding these proof systems, we stress the essential role of randomness in each of them

On the composition of Zeroknowledge proof systems
by Oded Goldreich
(
Book
)
2 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide We present lower bounds on the round complexity of zeroknowledge proofs, with significant implications to the parallelization of zero knowledge protocols. We prove that 3round interactive proofs and constantround ArthurMerlin proofs that are blackbox simulation zero knowledge exist only for languages in BPP. In particular, it follows that the 'parallel versions' of the first interactive proofs systems presented for quadratic residuosity, graph isomorphism and any language in NP, are not blackbox simulation zeroknowledge, unless the corresponding languages are in BPP more
