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.
