Time and Room: Mon, Thu 9-11, HS 138
Starts on Monday, October 14, 2002, at 9:15h
Problem sessions: Monday 11-13, HS 132 (changed!)
Contents: After a survey of classical cipher systems we will study modern block cipher crypto systems and public key cryptography. It deals not only with secret coding of messages but also with digital signatures and authentification. Public key cryptography uses interesting mathematical methods from number theory and algebraic geometry (e.g. elliptic curves over finite fields)
Prerequisites: Basic notions of algebra and analysis. My course on Algorithmic Number Theory (SS 2002) is useful, but not an absolute prerequisite.
For: Students of the International Master Program
