Title: Constructing a Pseudorandom Generator Requires an Almost Linear Number of Calls

We show that a black-box construction of a pseudorandom
generator from a one-way function needs to make Omega(n/log(n))
calls to the underlying one-way function. The bound even holds if the
one-way function is guaranteed to be regular. In this case it matches
the best known construction due to Goldreich, Krawczyk, and Luby (SIAM
J. Comp. 22, 1993), which uses O(n/log(n)) calls.

Le séminaire se tient le mardi à 11h00, Salle 1D06.
