Hi, I'm Scott Griffy. -- Introduction -- I've done a lot of various computer-related stuff in my life. Currently, I'm very interested in theoretical cryptography and how to use it to solve societal and techincal problems. -- Education/Jobs -- I'm starting a PhD in computer science at Brown in September 2021. I'm planning to work with Anna Lysyanskaya. I graduated from Portland State University with a master's in computer science in June 2019. I got my bachelor's in computer science from Oregon State University. I'm currently working at Intel as a Security Researcher. -- Academic Projects -- I co-authored a paper on searchable encryption that appeared at DSN 2019, titled: The Strength of Weak Randomization: Easily Deployable, Efficiently Searchable Encryption with Minimal Leakage with: David Pouliot and Charles V. Wright at Portland State University My Master's thesis introduced a concrete version of a scheme for exceptional access. It is titled: Crumpled and Abraded Encryption: Implementation and Provably Secure Construction. PSU library link. Advisor: Charles V. Wright. I presented work based on my master's thesis at DIMACS 2020 Workshop on Co-Development of Computer Science and Law. -- Other Projects -- I help out at a club called "GEMS" (Game & Entertainment-Making Students) at Portland State. I make Android games and apps such as an unofficial mobile app for a resource management company. -- Techincal Writeups -- Here's some old links to writeups I've done on practical computer security: 2016-07-08 Reverse shell in shellcode. 2016-09-14 Using fuzzing to find bugs. -- Contact -- scottgariffaya@gmaail.acom - resume
