Cryptography

Cryptography studies the design of distributed systems with resilience against arbitrary adversarial abuse. What makes this task challenging is that at the time a scheme is designed, it is not yet known how an attack may look like or what resources are available to an adversary.

This course is an introduction into modern cryptography and covers fundamental concepts such as

  • Security models and security proofs
  • Information-theoretic and computational security
  • Pseudorandomness
  • Private Key Encryption
  • Authentication
  • Public Key Encryption
  • Signature Schemes
  • Zero-Knowledge Proofs
  • Basic Multiparty Computation Protocols

Location and Time: Günter-Hotz-Hörsaal Monday 10.00 - 12.00 and Wednesday 14.00 - 16.00
