Cryptography & Protocols




13 Weeks

About the Course

Cryptography is integral to our online world and information systems. It is essential that when building these systems we understand the significance of the cryptographic applications we use. In this module the student will learn the fundamentals of cryptography and its application in security protocols. These protocols allow systems to achieve information security, privacy and trust. Students will learn the mathematics and cryptographic tools to analyse and understand the strengths and shortcomings of such security protocols and will develop an understanding of how to improve insecure systems.
