Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

MITS 5500G - Cryptography and Secure Communications


Protecting information assets is certainly important to the secrecy, integrity and availability of systems. Indeed, the need for secure communications is more profound than ever, recognizing that the conduct of much of our commerce and business is being carried out today through the medium of computers and digital networks. This course is on cryptography, the umbrella term used to describe the science of secure communications. In this course, students with strong mathematical backgrounds learn the details about the transformation of a message into ciphertext form by encryption and the recovery of the original message by decryption. This course describes the cryptographic mechanisms through which confidentiality, integrity, availability, authentication and message signature can all be provided. Furthermore, the course explores the basics of malware and defence mechanisms while touching on general aspects of intrusion prevention and detection.
Credit hours: 3
Cross-listed: ENGR 5670G - Cryptography and Secure Communications , and CSCI 5310G - Cryptography and Secure Communications .
