Lecture deals with the basic methods to solve three key problems of the transmission of information. All three problems are of large practical importance and their solutions are based on elegant theoretical results.
On successful completion of the course students should be able to:
understand problems of the theory of error-correcting codes;
understand basic principles and results of the theory of secure communication;
know principles and problems of basic cryptosystems for encryption (both secret and public key), digital signing and authentication;
know methods to create core cryptographic protocols primitives;
analyze and practically use simple cryptosystems;
be experienced in methods of quantum cryptography and steganography
Coding theory and modern cryptography are rich on deep, elegant,
practically very important ideas, methods, and systems. Main concepts
of modern cryptography are closely connected with fundamental concepts
of theoretical informatics. Current cryptohraphy and its methods and
systems are of key importance for modern communication and information
systems. Basic knowledge of coding methods and of modern cryptography
necessary for each graduate of informatics.
Lecture will be rich also on examples and experiences from a very
interesting history of cryptography.
