2010 - Fellow of Alfred P. Sloan Foundation

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cryptography
  • Algebra
  • Algorithm

His primary areas of study are Encryption, Theoretical computer science, Attribute-based encryption, Computer security and Functional encryption. Brent Waters regularly ties together related areas like Cryptography in his Encryption studies. The concepts of his Theoretical computer science study are interwoven with issues in Scheme, Homomorphic encryption, Random oracle, Cryptosystem and Standard model.

Brent Waters focuses mostly in the field of Attribute-based encryption, narrowing it down to topics relating to Access structure and, in certain cases, Proxy re-encryption, Generic group model and Computer security model. His studies in Functional encryption integrate themes in fields like Predicate encryption and On-the-fly encryption, Client-side encryption. Brent Waters interconnects Multiple encryption and 40-bit encryption in the investigation of issues within Probabilistic encryption.

His most cited work include:

  • Attribute-based encryption for fine-grained access control of encrypted data (3551 citations)
  • Ciphertext-Policy Attribute-Based Encryption (3062 citations)
  • Fuzzy identity-based encryption (2960 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Encryption, Theoretical computer science, Computer security, Public-key cryptography and Ciphertext. His study in Encryption is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Discrete mathematics and Key. His Theoretical computer science research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cryptography, Random oracle, Pseudorandom number generator, Scheme and Standard model.

His Cryptosystem and Adversary study in the realm of Computer security interacts with subjects such as Collusion. His Probabilistic encryption study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Multiple encryption and 40-bit encryption. The Ciphertext indistinguishability research Brent Waters does as part of his general Attribute-based encryption study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Delegation, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Encryption (52.33%)
  • Theoretical computer science (50.00%)
  • Computer security (28.68%)
