Course Description for Applied Cryptography

CIS6371: Applied Cryptography

Description: This course is about constructing practical cryptosystems for which we can argue security under plausible assumptions. The course covers many constructions for different tasks in cryptography. For each task, we define a precise security goal that we aim to achieve and then present constructions that achieve the required goal. A unified framework will be developed to analyze those constructions.
