Dan Boneh to Receive 2014 ACM-Infosys Foundation Award

Stanford Researcher Recognized for Advances in Cryptography

ACM and the Infosys Foundation have named Dan Boneh of Stanford University the recipient of the 2014 ACM-Infosys Foundation Award in the Computing Sciences for ground-breaking contributions to to the development of pairing-based cryptography and its application in identity-based encryption. His work helped establish the field of pairing-based cryptography, a dominant area in cryptography for the last decade, by demonstrating the use of pairing functions to solve a wide variety of problems in cryptography. Boneh, with Matt Franklin, showed how pairings could be used to develop a fully functional identity-based encryption scheme (IBE). This ushered in a new area of cryptography research to which Boneh's contributions have been central. Pairing-based cryptography makes security mechanisms easier to use and deploy, and improves computer security to keep data, devices and critical systems safe, private and accessible.

2014 ACM A.M. Turing Award Goes to Michael Stonebraker

Pioneer in Database Systems Architecture to Receive ACM's Highest Honor

ACM has named Michael Stonebraker of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) recipient of the 2014 ACM A.M. Turing Award for fundamental contributions to the concepts and practices underlying modern database systems. Database systems are critical applications of computing and preserve much of the world's important data. Stonebraker invented many of the concepts that are used in almost all modern database systems. He demonstrated how to engineer database systems that support these concepts and released these systems as open software, which ensured their widespread adoption. Source code from Stonebraker’s systems can be found in many modern database systems. During a career spanning four decades, Stonebraker founded numerous companies successfully commercializing his pioneering database technology work.
