The US, which touts itself as the land of the free, should hang its head in shame over the refusal to renew a tourist visa for celebrated Israeli cryptographer Adi Shamir so he could attend the RSA Conference in San Francisco last week, an event he co-founded 27 years ago.
Public-key cryptography pioneer Whitfield Diffie has poured scorn on former Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull over the latter's comment that "the laws of mathematics are very commendable, but the only law that applies in Australia is the law of Australia" made in the run-up to the introduction of the encryption bill in Parliament last year.
Turing Award winner and globally renowned cryptographer Adi Shamir has confirmed that the US Government did not grant him a renewal of his tourist visa and thus prevented him from attending the RSA Conference this year. He questioned whether it was time to think of hosting top scientific confernces elsewhere.
