The SAI conference aims to be the premier venue for researchers and industry practitioners to share new ideas, research results and development experiences in the areas of Computer Science, Electronics and Communication.
This year the work of Greg Spyra was showcased in his research work on IBE (Identity-based Encryption), sticky policies and in storing documents securely in the public Cloud.

Greg's vision is to be able to store documents secure in the Cloud, but have restrictions on elements of the document based on the role of the person accessing it. His work also aims to overcome the problems related to PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) and move towards encryption methods which are more focused on the identity of the person, rather than on digital certificates.
