ECE 62700 - Introduction to Cryptography and Secure CommunicationCredits: 3
Areas of Specialization(s):Communications, Networking, Signal & Image Processing
Normally Offered: Fall - even years
This course introduces the basic concepts of cryptography. Various cipher systems Various cipher systems are presented including transposition and substitution systems, Block ciphers, RSA & Knapsack. Methods used to attack ciphers are discussed with emphasis on complexity. Case studies of use of cryptographic methods in communication systems are presented with some consideration given to privacy issues.
