Course Contents
Computers are now found in every layer of society, and information is being communicated and processed automatically on a large scale. Examples include medical and financial files, automatic banking, video-phones, pay-tv, teleshopping and global computer networks. In all these cases there is a growing need for the protection of information to safeguard economic interests, to prevent fraud and to ensure privacy. In the course the fundamentasls of secure storage and transportation of informatrion are described. Among others things, attention is given to symmetric (DES, AES) and aymmetric (RSA, Elliptic Curves) cryptograhic algorithms, which are suitable for data security, to methods for authentication, data integrity and digital signatures.
Study Goals
It is the aim that at the end of the course one has a survey of the state of the art of both cryptographic algorithms and protocols for security and privacy, as well as is familiar with present applications.
