252-0407-00L Cryptography Foundations
|Periodizität||jährlich wiederkehrende Veranstaltung|
|Kurzbeschreibung||Fundamentals and applications of cryptography. Cryptography as a mathematical discipline: reductions, constructive cryptography paradigm, security proofs. The discussed primitives include cryptographic functions, pseudo-randomness, symmetric encryption and authentication, public-key encryption, key agreement, and digital signature schemes. Selected cryptanalytic techniques.|
|Lernziel||The goals are:|
(1) understand the basic theoretical concepts and scientific thinking in cryptography;
(2) understand and apply some core cryptographic techniques and security proof methods;
(3) be prepared and motivated to access the scientific literature and attend specialized courses in cryptography.
|Inhalt||See course description.|
|Voraussetzungen / Besonderes||Familiarity with the basic cryptographic concepts as treated for|
example in the course "Information Security" is required but can
in principle also be acquired in parallel to attending the course.
