5854. Modern Cryptography: Primitives and Protocols

3.00 credits

Prerequisites: Prerequisite: Open to graduate students in the CSE program, others with permission. Recommended Preparation: MATH3160, CSE 3500, CSE3502, and CSE4702 or the equivalent. (RG5919)

Grading Basis: Graded

This course covers modern cryptography emphasizing provable security and concrete constructions based on the hardness of specific computational problems. After surveying some basic cryptographic primitives and associated number-theoretic constructions, the course focuses on public-key infrastructure and protocols: it will cover such topics as digital signatures, identification and key-exchange schemes, distributed key generation, blind signatures, zero-knowledge proofs, and private function computation.
