MAT320 Cryptography

Subject: MAT
Course Number: 320
Credits: 3 Credits
Available Online: No
This course will focus on protocols (including public and private key encryption schemes, digital signature, zero knowledge proofs, one way function, and a variety of other techniques) used to encrypt and decrypt information. We will explore the mathematics that determines how safe the data you transmit is and what measures you can take to make your data more secure. Along the way, students will get a basic understanding of Number Theory and Error Correcting Codes. The protocols discussed in this course are what make it possible to have digital signatures, to transfer funds electronically, to send information securely over the internet and to devise new applications as situations arise.
