The RSA Conference Award for Excellence in Mathematics is given annually at the RSA Conference (the leading IT security forum, dedicated to the practice of Cryptography and Information security, see[1]), and it recognizes innovation and ongoing contribution to the field of cryptography. The judging committee of experts which is associated with the Cryptographer's Track at RSA Conference (CT-RSA)[2] seeks to acknowledge those nominees who are pioneers in their field, and whose work has applied or theoretical lasting value. Nominees are typically affiliated with universities or industrial research labs. The award is one of the top recognitions for a researcher in the field of Cryptography defined broadly. Leading cryptography researchers have won the award over the years, based on their innovative works. Note, in addition to this award, some pioneers in the field have won other awards in the same conference, most notably a lifetime achievement award which was given over the years to the RSA namesakes (in 2012): Ronald Rivest, Adi Shamir, and Leonard Adleman, and to the inventors of the notion of Public-key cryptography: Martin Hellman (2013) and Whitfield Diffie (2010), as well as to an early contributor to the field and its practice: Taher Elgamal (2009).

Notes[edit | edit source]

The award is given annually to an individual or individuals, as the history of award recipients indicates. Over the years, almost all areas of Cryptographic research have been acknowledged by an award (mathematical foundations, number theory and algebra, computational complexity foundations, information theoretic foundations, cipher design and cryptanalysis, cryptosystems, symmetric and public key systems (design and analysis), cryptographic protocols, applied protocols, secure computations protocols, hardware oriented designs, standards, and so on). The various committees, over the years, have recognized pioneering contributions for their theoretical and practical lasting importance and high impact on the field development and external influence on related fields and actual applications of cryptographic technology.

Some video clips and additional reporting are available about award winners, their stories, or their award ceremonies: [18], [19], [20], [21], [22], [23], [24], [25], [26], [27].
