Cryptology isn't a mere collection of papers. It is also a community of real people. In this crypto lounge, I've collected some videos showing famous cryptologists from a more personal side: commemorative lectures, discussion panels, interviews etc.

While the focus is more on personal interviews, I've also listed some regular lectures and invited talks directed at a more general audience that I particularly liked, when I couldn't find more personal footage. They too capture at least a tiny fraction of the real human behind the author's name on a paper.

If you scroll down, you'll also find a series of semi off-topic videos on non-crypto related subjects, which you may find interesting.

This playlist is "work in progress": I'll update it now and then, so feel free to come back for updates.

The End?

Semi Off-Topic (non-crypto)

This is a sub-playlist of videos that I've stumbled across while looking for various crypto-related discplines like, e.g. quantum compting or anything else. I think they're amazing and funny and instructive; definitely worth watching on your spare time.
