# A Mathematician's introduction to Alice and Bob

SPEAKER: Robert Bradshaw

ABSTRACT: In this talk I will present the some of the terminology, scenarios, and conventions used in cryptography. I will also discuss some of the commonly used tools and algorithms, such as RSA, El Gamal, Elliptic Curve Crypto, Diffie-Hellman, DES, and AES, and others. There will be no assumption of any crypto background, indeed this talk is intended to be a prelude summarizing the basic context for future talks.
