The seminar shall let students dive deeper into a topic related to cryptography or security in general. Contemporary “hot topics” will be offered at the beginning of the course to choose from, but topics of the student’s own suggestion related to the course are equally welcome.
Students will prepare a presentation of their chosen topic and give a lecture-like introduction to the audience. In addition, each student will prepare a written seminar thesis (around 5000 words) to be submitted by the end of the course.
Rough time-line of the course:
The grading is based on the joint assessment of the presentation and the seminar thesis. To pass the course, you will need to reach a threshold of points on the presentation and the thesis (as submitted). Criteria for the grading are:

For the seminar thesis:
Further information about the scoring and and tips for seminar presentations and theses will be given upon the beginning of the course, and will be made available in Moodle.
