Silvio Micali (born October 13 1954) is an Italian-born computer scientist at MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and a professor of computer science in MIT's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science since 1983. His research centers on the theory of cryptography and information security. He received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 1982. Micali won the Gödel Prize in 1993. In 2007, he was selected to be a member of the National Academy of Science and a Fellow of the IACR.He is chief scientist of CoreStreet and was co-founder (with Ron Rivest) of Peppercoin.

Micali is best known for having written some key definitional papers on public-key cryptosystems, pseudorandom functions, digital signatures, and is one of the co-inventors of zero-knowledge proofs.
