Dan Boneh ( ; Hebrew: דן בונה) is a teacher and researcher in applied cryptography and computer security.
Israel in 1969, Boneh obtained his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Princeton University in 1996 under the supervision of Richard J. Lipton. 
Boneh is one of the principal contributors to the development of
pairing-based cryptography from the Weil Pairing, along with Matt Franklin of the University of California, Davis.
He joined the faculty of  Stanford University in 1997, and became professor of computer science and electrical engineering.  He teaches  massive open online courses on the online learning platform Coursera.
In 1999 he was awarded a fellowship from the  David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
In 2002, he co-founded a company called Voltage Security with three of his students.  The company was acquired by  Hewlett Packard in 2015. 
In 2018, Boneh became co-director (with David Mazières) of the newly founded Center for Blockchain Research at Stanford, predicting at the time that "
Blockchains will become increasingly critical to doing business globally."
Some of Boneh's results in cryptography include:
2015: Privacy-preserving proofs of solvency for
Bitcoin exchanges  2010: Efficient Identity-Based Encryption from Learning with Errors Assumption (with Shweta Agrawal and Xavier Boyen)
 2010: He was involved in designing
tcpcrypt, TCP extensions for transport-level security   2005: A partially
homomorphic cryptosystem (with Eu-Jin Goh and Kobbi Nissim)  2005: The first broadcast encryption system with full collision resistance (with Craig Gentry and Brent Waters)
2003: A timing attack on
OpenSSL (with David Brumley) 2001: An efficient
identity-based encryption system (with Matt Franklin) based on the Weil pairing.  1999: Cryptanalysis of
RSA when the private key is less than N 0.292 (with Glenn Durfee) 1997: Fault-based cryptanalysis of public-key systems (with
Richard J. Lipton and Richard DeMillo) 1995: Collision resistant fingerprinting codes for digital data (with James Shaw)
1995: Cryptanalysis using a DNA computer (with Christopher Dunworth and Richard J. Lipton)
Some of his contributions in computer security include:
2007: "Show[ing] that the time web sites take to respond to HTTP requests can leak private information."
 2005: PwdHash a browser extension that transparently produces a different password for each site
