Whitfield Diffie

Cryptographer and Security Expert, Cryptomathic

Whitfield Diffie is best known for his work pioneering dual-key cryptography in the early 1970s. Before Diffie’s 1976 paper “New Directions in Cryptography,” written with Martin Hellman, encryption technology was the sole domain of government entities. The Diffie-Hellman key exchange protocol democratized the use of cryptography and revolutionized the landscape of security in the private sector.
