Cryptographers from Asia, North America, Africa, Australia, and Europe are coming to UCSB for their annual CRYPTO Conference. These code crackers -- who use mathematical techniques to decipher and send coded messages -- ensure computer security throughout the world by finding methods to transform data to hide its information content, to prevent undetected modification, and to avert its unauthorized use. Computer security specialist Richard Kemmerer, UCSB professor and chair of the computer science department, is one of the original organizers of the conference. (Aug. 15-19.)
