A representative from The National Security Agency (NSA) will provide a Math/CS Chat on Tuesday, September 27th at Noon in Tome 115. The talk title is "The Secret Lives of Mathematicians".
Abstract: The National Security Agency (NSA) plays a critical role in the United States Intelligence Community. From code making to code breaking, the NSA's primary objectives include both offensive and defensive aspects of communications analysis and development, none of which would be possible without an elite force of mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers, and many more.
This talk aims to give an overview of career opportunities in math and computer science at the NSA, and present several key examples of public-key cryptography, including the Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange and RSA.
