For 13 years now, I have been passionately organizing edutainment activities, often related to mathematics, talks and games. Earlier these comprised of seminars and camps for younger students (most of which I earlier attended myself), especially MASKOT, BRKOS, KoMáR and BRLOH. I also ocassionally helped with organizing competitions InterLoS, InterSoB, N-Trophy, lectured at T-exkurze, MjUNI, Poznej FI, K-SCUK, OpenLab and BrNOC and supervised and chaired SOČ. I enjoy helping others, hence I also supervise bachelor thesis and mentor newcomers to the Nadáči program.
Currently I strive to reach a wider audience and get society excited about the mathematical way of thinking, problem solving and a deeper understanding of the world. My main project in this direction is the podcast Místo problémů.
Performances and interviews
Obtaining information through side channels - that is, in an unintended way - is quite common in our society. However, in the context of cyber security and cryptography, these can lead to a number of dangerous attacks on the systems we use every day. Therefore, it is important to find and remove side channels. In the performance, we will see how to use seemingly innocent information about time to break into someone else's bank account.
In the CRoCS laboratory at FI MUNI, we investigate information security and cryptography from many perspectives. One of the areas we deal with is the cryptanalysis of various implementations of widely used cryptographic algorithms, especially in software libraries and on smart cards. Even mathematically flawless models do not guarantee sufficient safety in the real world.
Can we trust magic wands (i.e. standardized elliptical curves)?
From beautiful to practical, or the relationship between number theory and cryptography.
What are the current security wars in the world? What does applied mathematics look like? How to strengthen your internet security? Moderated by Petr Holík.
The relationship between mathematics and cryptography, current research projects in CRoCS FI MUNI, practical security tips. Moderated by Nina Kadášová.
Often it doesn't even take any deep mathematical theory for someone with a little skill to get to the information that should be protected. Until we build a robust system of rules for emerging technologies and change the culture in this area, the human error factor is likely to remain the biggest vulnerability. Moderated by Marta Vrlová.
