Join fellow MIT alumni and friends for a special MIT Forum event featuring Whitfield Diffie '65, cryptographer, internet pioneer, and scholar.

Diffie, a consulting professor at The Center for International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University, won the 2015 A.M. Turing Award for "inventing and promulgating both asymmetric public-key cryptography, including its application to digital signatures, and a practical cryptographic key-exchange method."

Diffie's talk will be by a fireside chat with Wade Roush PhD '94, producer and host of Soonish, and audience Q&A. The event includes a reception with drinks and hors d'oeuvres.

MIT alumni and guests are welcome. Space is limited—register today.
