Hey! I'm David, a security engineer at the Blockchain team of Facebook, previously a security consultant for the Cryptography Services of NCC Group. This is my blog about cryptography and security and other related topics that I find interesting.

Matt Whitlock - Elliptic Curve Cryptography, the Foundation of Bitcoin posted March 2014

Great lecture from Matt Whitlock, the video's quality is a bit off but the talk is really easy to understand and nicely paced.

And you can tell right away that he's a great educator: "I'll explain first why we use ECC, because in general I don't really understand things when I don't know how they're important" (not the exact words but you get the idea).

Well done! You've reached the end of my post. Now you can leave me a comment :)
