>From a flyer I received this morning:
Title: "The Pre-History of Public Key Cryptography"
Speaker: Richard Walton, GCHQ
Date: 4 February 1998, 4.30pm
Place: Royal Holloway (University of London)
In December 1997 CESG published an article which contained the following
reference: JH Ellis 'The Possibility of Secure Non-Secret Digital
CESG Report, 1970. This report, which precedes the celebrated 1976 paper
Diffie and Hellman, discusses Public Key Cryptography. Their announcement
aroused considerable public interest and Richard Walton has kindly agreed
talk to us about those early years.
Anyone interested is welcome to attend.
The talk will be given in Room BLT1 in the Bourne Building but tea will be
provided from about 3.45 outside the Lecture Room.
