Too often one gets the impression of tacit expectation that scientific research has to produce results
within some predictable time. But many examples illustrate that it may take some time to validate the results of theoretical …

An ideal scheme for password storage would enable a password with more than 20 bits of randomness to be input and output from the brain of a human being who is unconscious of the process and thus unable to give away or reveal …
We present a defense against coercion attacks using the concept of implicit learning from cognitive psychology. We use a carefully crafted computer game to allow a user to implicitly learn a secret password without them having …

Sorting is one of the most fundamental, and most studied, computational tasks. The problem is typically to put n
items in order. The objective is to minimize time, space, number of comparisons, or number of rounds of comparisons …
