Cryptographic techniques are currently being utilized in the following areas: Secure electronic mail, The Internet, Home banking, Internet browsers, Electronic cash, Credit card transactions, Instant teller banking, Wholesale banking, Pagers, Cellular telephones, Smart cards, Fax encryption, Modems, Secure telephones, Cable TV and pay-per-view.
Many new ideas have been invented in the last two decades, which have exciting applications in computer systems, telecommunications systems (Internet security, mobile communications), and payment systems. Important aspect is the efficient implementation in both software and hardware of cryptographic primitives and the security evaluation of components and systems including smart cards. Especially public-key cryptography which has emerged in the last 25 years, is not only the subject of an enormous amount of research, but provides the foundation for information security in many applications. Public-key cryptographic techniques are now in wide spread use in industry, especially in financial services industry and by individuals for their personal privacy in communication. On the other hand public-key algorithms and protocols are based on sophisticated mathematics such as computational and algorithmic algebraic geometry, coding theory, and generic algorithms for finite abelian groups.
- To conduct a graduate program leading to M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Cryptography,
- To provide a mathematical treatment to the practical aspects of conventional and public-key cryptography,
- To introduce mathematical tools for serious practitioner in need of the latest techniques and algorithms,
- To evolve into an internationally recognized center for research in cryptography and related areas of information security.
