- Fields of study the course is directly associated with
- there are 37 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
- Course objectives
- The aim of this subject is to understand implementation details of cryptographic algortithms and protocols and 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 independently.
- Principles of cryptography and cryptographic standards (symmetric cryptography, random number generation, hash functions, asymmetric cryptography, certificates, certification authority, PKI). Using cryptographic libraries in cryptoaplications (OpenSSL, Cryptlib, Microsoft Crypto API, Java). Digital Signatures (CMS/PKCS#7 structure, S/MIME, Czech legislation). Smartcards (using the PC/SC interface to communicate with the smartcards/smartcard readers, APDU commands/replies, Secure Messaging, Javacards and programming of own applications running on smartcards). Electronic passports (principles, access control, reading of data).

- 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 are required.
