- Registration to PV181 requires: 1) long-term interest in IT security; 2) programming skills (ideally C and Java) under Unix/Linux or Win32; 3) fluent English.
- Course Enrolment Limitations
- The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
The capacity limit for the course is 36 student(s).
Current registration and enrolment status: enrolled: 9/36, only registered: 0/36, only registered with preference (fields directly associated with the programme): 0/36
- Fields of study the course is directly associated with
- there are 38 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
- Course objectives
- The aim of this subject is to understand 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 independently.
- Learning outcomes
- To teach the students to:
select appropriate cryptographic functions;
understand basic-level issues of implementating cryptographic applications;
apply the gained knowledge in practice;
judge pros and cons of crypto functions ;
independently design and implement simple cryptographic applications in various enviroments;
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 cryptoaplications (OpenSSL, Cryptlib, Microsoft Crypto API, Java). Digital Signatures (CMS/PKCS#7 structure, S/MIME, Czech legislation). Formats of commmon cryptographic files (keys, certificates, ASN.1). Biometric systems (fingerprint, face).

- 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) 70% of the points is required.
- Language of instruction
- Follow-Up Courses
- Further comments (probably available only in Czech)
- Study Materials
The course is taught annually.
