Requirements:
This is a "grupa kursów" - only one grade will be given.
The grade for the course will be based on the sum of:
the points from the test during the lectures.
the points obtained during tutorials according to the rules determined there.
The points will be recalculated so that in each part it will be possible to get 50 weighted points.
The minimal number of points to pass the course will be no higher than 40 (may be slightly lower).
For grade ''very good'' it is necessary to get 80 points.
The written tests will check understanding, skills and ability of problem solving.
It will consist of short problems that will demand certain creativity and careful rethinking.
It is not necessary to remember details of algorithms and protocols,
but it will be necessary to understand them well.
Usually, the details which are hard to remember, will be recalled on the
question sheet. It will be allowed to bring own notices, books, ...
Goals:
presentation of technologies of contemporary cryptography -
mathematical foundations, algorithms and
protocols, implementation issues, and some legal issues.
Prerequisitives:
some knowledge of modular arithmetics, algorithms,
computational complexity, computer networks
