Strong Key Derivation from Noisy Sources

My Ph.D. has been completed and defended.  It is titled Strong Key Derivation from Noisy Sources.  It is largely drawn from three papers Computational Fuzzy ExtractorsReusable Fuzzy Extractors for Low-Entropy Distributions, and When are Fuzzy Extractors Possible?  Those papers are more up-to-date than my Ph.D.  My Ph.D does contain a cohesive summary of the results that can be useful as an introduction.
