Courses

Cryptography and security

This course introduces the basics of cryptography. We review several types of cryptographic primitives, when it is safe to use them and how to select the appropriate security parameters. We detail how they work and sketch how they can be implemented.

Advanced cryptography

  1. The cryptograhic zoo: definitions, cryptographic primitives, math, algorithms, complexity
  2. Cryptographic security models: security notions for encryption and authentication, game reduction techniques, RSA and Diffie-Hellman security notions
  3. Public-key cryptanalysis: side channels, low RSA exponents, discrete logarithm, ElGamal sign

Student seminar: security protocols and applications

This seminar introduces the participants to the current trends, problems, and methods in the area of communication security.
