Cryptography has a reputation of slowing down
applications. However if done correctly, it can
actually be used to improve performance by storing
high-value/high-cost results "in public." In addition
the same techniques can solve common security
problems such as authorization, parameter scanning,
and parameter rewriting.
All are welcome - no previous experience with
cryptography is required, and the techniques will
be presented in a programming-language neutral
