Professor Jonathan Katz has been named a Fellow of the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR). Katz is being honored “[f]or broad contributions, especially in public-key encryption and cryptographic protocols, and for dedication to service and education.”

The IACR Fellows Program highlights their members who advance the science, technology and practice of cryptology; promote the free exchange of ideas and information about cryptology; encourage the professional skill and integrity of members of the community; and promote their community to a wider scientific community.

"This is like a dream come true," says Katz. "I have the greatest respect for the IACR community, and many of the other IACR fellows were my role models when I began working in this field -- and still are my role models today. I am truly honored to be named an IACR fellow alongside them."
