  • Principles of cryptography and cryptographic standards (symmetrical cryptography, random number generation, hash functions, asymmetrical cryptography, certificates, certification authority, PKI). Cryptographic libraries (OpenSSL, Cryptlib, Microsoft Crypto API, Java). Digital Signatures (CMS/PKCS#7 structure, S/MIME, Czech legislation). Smartcards (PC/SC interface, APDU commands, Secure Messaging, Javacards and application programming), electronic passports.
Assessment methods (in Czech)
Výuka je jen zčásti rozvrhována, jinak studenti pracují podle vlastního uvážení a možností na úkolech zadaných vyučujícími. Domácích úkolů je celkem 14 po 10 bodech.
