Born in 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.

The Association for Computing Machinery awarded him the ACM-Infosys Foundation award in 2014, and he became a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery in 2016.

Some of Boneh's results in cryptography include:

  • 2015 Privacy-preserving proofs of solvency for Bitcoin exchanges
  • 2010 He was involved in designing tcpcrypt, TCP extensions for transport-level security
  • 2005 The first broadcast encryption system with full collusion 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 N0.292 (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
  • Boneh's awards include:

  • Sloan Research Fellowship
  • the Terman Award
  • 2005 RSA Award
  • Gödel Prize, 2013, with Matthew K. Franklin and Antoine Joux, for his work on the Boneh–Franklin scheme
