Prerequisite(s): MATH 244 .
Introduction to the concepts and applications of cryptography and computer security. Included are the basic building blocks of network security, such as conventional and public key encryption techniques, authentication and digital signatures. Important network security and Web security tools and applications, including S/MIME, IP security, Kerberos, SSL/TLS, and Secure Electronic Transactions (SET), as well as methodologies for countering hackers and computer viruses are explored. The language of modern cryptography is primarily number theory, and various tools of number theory, including modular arithmetic, primality, and hash functions are developed as needed.
