In this segment, João Tomé gets to know Nikita Borisov, a visiting researcher in Cloudflare’s research team. We go over his experience as a cryptographer and as a professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We explain what is the Rate-limited privacy pass (RLPP), its evolution and how it can be helpful for online privacy. Nikita also talks about some of the protocols he helped create — one of the first cryptanalyses of the WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) wireless encryption protocol and the Off-the-Record Messaging protocol.
