Cryptographic protocols (Autumn 2010)

Time and location
Event Time Location
Lectures and practice sessions Mon 12:15 - 15:45 Liivi 2-404
Thu 8:15 - 11:45 Liivi 2-224
(weeks 9—16)
As both the lectures and practice sessions are given by the same teacher, their split will be pretty dynamic.


Grading is based on a number of take-home exercises during the course (making up two thirds of the grade) and an oral exam sometime after the lectures have ended (making up the rest of the grade) (if someone wants to make the exam in written form, this can be discussed). The oral exam consists of a conversation with me on one of the topics listed here. You will know the topic one hour before the conversation.

The contents of the lectures is similar to the previous year. There is no single textbook that covers all material of the course. The first lectures somewhat (but only somewhat) follow certain chapters of Wenbo Mao's "Modern Cryptography: Theory and Practice". For the second part, Bingsheng has compiled a list of papers. For the third part, I put together a list.
