This edition of the cryptography course will be co-taught by Kaisa Nyberg (teaching period I) and Chris Brzuska (teaching period II) and the teaching assistants Miika Leinonen (Group H1), Estuardo Alpirez Bock (Group H2), Osama Abuzaid (Group H3), Pihla Karanko (Group H4), Valtteri Lipiainen (Group H5) and Konrad Kohbrok (Group H6). Teaching period I will cover the design and cryptanalysis of symmetric cryptographic primitives. Teaching period II covers security definitions and security proofs (reductions).
Important: During the first lecture, we will pass around a sheet for people to register to the different exercise groups so that we can assign a teaching assistant to write feedback for the exercises you hand in. If you can't attend the first lecture and want to submit exercises, please send an eMail to Chris with the exercise group(s) you prefer or go to the exercise group and register there (if there is still space). Currently (10/09 19:41), the Wednesday group has 20 participants, Th 10:15-12:00 has 25 participants, and Th 12:15-14:00 has 22 participants.
For more details on the course, content, schedule, book recommendations, contact information and explanation of passing criteria, see the Syllabus.
