Cryptography

Student projects in Cryptography

Cryptography („secret writing“) is a science that provides essential methods for secure communication. To be more specific, cryptographic methods can ensure confidentiality, integrity, authentication and nonrepudiation when a sender transmits a message to a recipient. At CP we are interested in all relevant cryptographic concepts, algorithms and protocols to ensure these properties for secure communication

These student projects can be started any time (including holidays) and can be span over semester boundaries.
