I defended my PhD thesis titled “Tree-Based Symmetric Key Broadcast Encryption” on 8th October, 2015. My PhD supervisor was Prof. Palash Sarkar.
Here is a copy of my PhD thesis: "Tree-Based Symmetric Key Broadcast Encryption" and here are the slides..
Implementations of the algorithms proposed in my thesis and other related programs can be found here.
