This talk will survey some recent advances in research on program obfuscation, an area of theoretical cryptography that has seen unprecedented levels of activity over the last four years. We will cover material starting from the basics, and no prior knowledge on obfuscation will be assumed. We will end with some open directions that should be accessible to theoreticians outside of cryptography.
