It is recommended to register this course after a cryptography course (M0170 or IV054), and it is also useful to have PV080 prior to this course.
- Course Enrolment Limitations
- The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
- Fields of study the course is directly associated with
- there are 43 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
- Course objectives
- At the end of the course students should be able to:
understand intermediate-level issues of deploying cryptographic mechanisms;
apply a crypto or security standard to fit the solution sought;
judge pros and cons of crypto methods considered for deployment;
independently design and test simple cryptographic solutions;
evaluate common crypto protocols in terms of security and efficiency.
- This course explores the issues of applied cryptography issues, and topics cover: Relations of symmetric and asymmetric cryptography.
- Hash functions and their applications.
- Digital signatures, MAC.
- 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.
- Application of cryptography in selected systems.
