Goldberg wins a Pioneer Award for encryption research

Tuesday, November 8, 2011

Professor Ian Goldberg of the Cheriton School of Computer Science will be awarded the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Pioneer Award, at a ceremony in San Francisco this month. His research in the area of encryption has led to improvements, which help to ensure that cell phone conversations and WiFi networks are kept private. Ian Goldberg and Nikita Borisov, a Waterloo Computer Science alumnus, invented the widely used Off-The-Record (OTR) Messaging protocol, which provides strong encryption for instant messaging. For those not familiar with the award, EFF established the Pioneer Awards in 1992 to recognize leaders on the electronic frontier who are extending freedom and innovation in the realm of information technology.
