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

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).
