Course Catalogue Description

Courses not listed in catalogue. Contents vary from year to year according to the interest of students and instructor in charge.

Course Objectives

This course will help students understand the cryptographic issues and techniques to achieve cyber security.

Course Learning Outcomes

We learn how to analyze the many and various responsibilities involved with cyber security in view of the cryptographic techniques. We also evaluate the required issues to protect information and communication in hardware and software. We have an overview of security requirements of cryptographic modules.

Tentative (Weekly) Outline

In this course, we focus on applied cryptography for cyber security and defense. We systematically examine the roles of cryptography in cyber security, cryptography being the practice and study of techniques for secure communication in the presence of (probably malicious) third parties. To achieve cyber security, new cryptographic techniques such as efficient communication protocols are needed. Since changing the IT landscape from web applications to cloud computing, there are technical challenges in obtaining secure communication, especially in mobile networks. In those systems, the main problem is identity management.
