- fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with
- there are 71 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
- Course objectives
- The aim of this subject is to understand the implementation details of cryptographic algorithms and protocols and to be able to apply the gained knowledge in practice. At the end of the course, students should be able to design and implement cryptographic applications relying on the most commonly-used crypto-libraries.
- Learning outcomes
- To teach the students to:
select appropriate cryptographic function according to requirements;
understand basic-level issues of implementing cryptographic applications;
apply the gained knowledge in practice;
compare crypto functions and libraries in terms of efficiency and level of abstraction;
independently design and implement simple cryptographic applications in various environments;
evaluate crypto applications in terms of their security and efficiency.
- Principles of cryptography and cryptographic standards (symmetric cryptography, random number generation, hash functions, asymmetric cryptography, certificates, certification authority, PKI). Using cryptographic libraries in crypto-applications (OpenSSL, Java, Microsoft Crypto API). Digital Signatures (including CMS/PKCS#7 structure). Formats of common cryptographic files (keys, certificates, ASN.1). Biometric systems (fingerprint, face). Hardware security aspects of crypto-libraries (side-channel analysis, fault injection).

- Teaching methods
- seminars in a security lab, homeworks
- Assessment methods
- Two hours per week are scheduled for seminars, otherwise students work on projects, homeworks etc. in their free time. There are 12 homeworks (10 points each). To get the credit (Z) 50% of the points is required, to get the colloquium (P) 65% of the points is required.
