Anna Lysyanskaya's primary research area is cryptography, the study of protecting communication and computation against malicious users. The fundamental problems in this area are secure communication, authentication of data, pseudorandomness, and secure multi-party computation.
Prof. Lysyanskaya is interested in such issues as efficient and provably secure cryptographic protocols, minimal complexity assumptions for achieving security in various settings, and secure distributed computation.
Professor Lysyanskaya came to Brown in Fall 2002, after completing a PhD at MIT.
