Obfuscation = cryptography?

OK, I'll admit that the math in this type of paper is completely beyond me.

But, hasn't he, or any of his friends, paid any attention to malware in the past two 
decades?  There is plenty of obfuscation out there.  (Most of it does what his 
program does: turn little programs into bloated monsters.)

Admittedly, this is an academic analysis of the foundations of what you can do, 
and probably will, eventually, with a lot of development, provide for a number of 
applications.

But I'm going to want to see a lot more explanation (by someone who understands 
what he has been told) before I'm going to get excited about this.
