  • Relations of symmetric and asymmetric cryptography.
  • Hash functions and their applications.
  • Digital signatures, MAC.
  • Non-repudiation.
  • Cryptographic protocols, entity authentication.
  • Public key infrastructure, certification.
  • Trust, electronic and/vs. real relations.
  • E-commerce security, payment systems.
  • Hardware protection of (cryptographic) secrets.
  • Patents and standards.
  • State restrictions and cryptology.
