Mathematics of Trust and Betrayal
Philip Reiner with Dr. Tom Berson
This week’s episode of The Fourth Leg, “The Mathematics of Trust and Betrayal,” features experienced cryptographer and owner and founder of Anagram Laboratories, Dr. Tom Berson. Dr. Berson joins Tech4GS’ Philip Reiner to discuss how lessons from the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) competition can aid the development of international standards and potentially serve as an example for collaborative, transparent efforts for the creation of the CATALINK system.
This podcast is accompanied by Tom Berson’s paper “The AES Project: Any Lessons for NC3?”
The Fourth Leg is a series of podcasts focused on one of the most complex systems in the world today – nuclear command and control – and its increasingly complicated future. Within this series we go straight to the experts, across multiple sectors, to discuss the modernization of nuclear command and control systems.
Along with colleagues from the Nautilus Institute and the Preventive Defense Project, Tech4GS recently hosted over 50 international experts at Stanford University to anticipate technical challenges that will arise from the modernization of complex nuclear command and control systems. We aim to spotlight some of the vulnerabilities within a modernized NC3 system while furthering the conversation with this series.
Keep an eye on IST, as we will begin additional podcast series in the coming months focused on how to fix the internet, AI and global stability, and other critical tech and security issues- for now, we have so much more to talk about, so let’s get started.
