General course objectives:
To introduce the students to advanced concepts and techniques in cryptology.
|A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:|
- Make computations in rings and finite fields.
- Explain how the symmetric cryptosystem AES works, including the underlying mathematics.
- Outline possible symmetric systems for authentication of data, and explain the advantages and disadvantages of systems, which are computationally secure and systems, which are unconditionally secure.
- Explain the basic ideas of provable security.
- Describe the method differential cryptanalysis and demonstrate how it is used in cryptanalysis.
- Explain the security of the RSA system and its relation to factoring.
- Define elliptic curves modulo a prime number, and discuss the applications of these in cryptology.
- Apply algorithms to compute discrete logarithms.
Rings and finite fields. The Advanced Encryption Standard. Message Authentication Codes. Discrete logarithm algorithms.
Factorisation algorithms. Elliptic curves modulo a prime number. Ideas of provable security.
The course is a sequel to the course 01410.
