Kleptography: Old Warnings, new Threats!
(invited talk ESORICS 2014, Wroclaw)

Designing trusted systems that are strong and secure is a challenging problem. Given attackers that are well financed, dedicated, and highly interested in breaking the global infrastructure is one of the issues we have realized in the last few years (Advanced Persistent Threats, and organization performing mass surveillance, etc.). Kleptography deals with employment of cryptography as an attack tool (for breaking security and privacy). We will discuss its development and its unique implications.
