Degrees incorporating this pedagocial element :


The course present the main cryptographic primitives and security protocols, focusing on security parameters and properties.

Pedagogical goals:

- generic cryptographic primitives: one-way, trap-door and hash functions; random generators; symmetric and assymertic cipher; interactive protocols;

- security properties : complexity and reduction proofs; undistinguidhability; non-malleability; soundness, completeness and zero-knowledge; confidentiality; authentication; privacy; non-repudiation

- use, deployment and integration of protocols in standard crypro lib (eg open-ssl)

- security proofs : fundations and verufucation based on tools (eg avispa)
