More than new algorithms, proofs, or technologies,
it is the emergence of definitions that has
changed the landscape of cryptography.
We describe how definitions work in modern cryptography, giving a number
of examples, and we provide observations, opinions, and suggestions
about the art and science of crafting them.
Comment: This is the invited paper correpsonding to an invited talk. It is not a traditional research paper, and is rather heavy in personal opinion and viewpoint. Some may like it, and some may hate it. Read at your own risk.
