Semantics and Syntax: A Legacy of Alan Turing Recently, there has been renewed interest in basing cryptographic primitives on weak secrets, where the only information about the secret is some non-trivial amount of (min-)entropy. From a formal point of view, such results require to upper bound the expectation of some function f(X), where X is a weak source in question. We show an elementary inequality which essentially upper bounds such ‘weak expectation’ by two terms, the first of which is This talk is part of the Isaac Newton Institute Seminar Series series. ## This talk is included in these lists:- All CMS events
