This is a course on the design, implementation, and analysis of contemporary cryptographic algorithms.

Among other things, we will give a detailed introduction to

  • elliptic curve cryptography
  • lattice-based cryptosystems
  • real-world protocols
  • public-key cryptography
  • modern key exchange and signature schemes
  • side-channel safety
  • homomorphic encryption
  • post-quantum cryptography
  • modern symmetric cryptography

We assume a familiarity with the basic cryptographic concepts and tools introduced in the course INF558a.
