Brent Waters, Ph.D.- Dr. Brent Waters, Assistant Professor of Computer Science at The University of Texas at Austin, is laying the foundation for managing encrypted computer data in cloud services, where data is stored at third-party locations outside of the owner's control.
Brent's research is helping build an entirely different vision for the encryption of sensitive data, called functional encryption. Brent's received his Ph.D. in computer science from Princeton University in 2004. From 2004-2005, he was a post-doctoral at Stanford University then worked at SRI as a computer scientist in the Principled Systems group. In 2008 he joined the faculty at The University of Texas at Austin as an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science. He is a National Academy of Sciences Kavli Fellow, a Sloan Fellow and recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER award.

Others are the natural result of cryptographic ideas reaching the marketplace, says Brent Waters, an associate professor at the University of Texas at Austin and the recipient of the Association for Computing Machinery's 2015 Grace Murray Hopper Award.

Brent Waters (2015)
Brent Waters 2015 Grace Murray Hopper Award Recognizes Brent Waters Brent Waters, recipient of the Grace Murray Hopper Award for the introduction and development of the concepts of attribute-based encryption and functional encryption. Waters' innovations enhance security efforts at a time when greater volumes of highly confidential data are moving to the cloud. Traditionally, public-key encryption makes use of a public key that targets ciphertexts to a specific user that holds one secret key. Waters' introduction of attribute-based encryption presented a new design where an administrator can create a policy-specific decryption key that will enable decryption of only the underlying files that satisfy the policy. Functional encryption, as conceived by Waters, takes things further by allowing an administrator to create private keys that allow a decryptor to learn only a particular function of the encrypted data, thus limiting their view to what they need to know about the data. Waters is an associate professor at the University of Texas at Austin. He has been named a Sloan Fellow, a Packard Fellow and a Microsoft Faculty Fellow. His many additional honors include receiving the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers.
