Organisation: UTU / Dept. of Mathematics and Statistics

Credit Points: 5

Responsible Person: Aleksi Saarela

Course code: MATE5344

Learning outcomes:
to broaden students' knowledge of cryptography

Contents:
Various mathematical structures are applicable in cryptography in many different ways. Finite fields and elliptic curves are good examples. A deeper study of such structures is included, complementing previous studies in cryptography. Then cryptographic applications of such structures are discussed.
