Content
This seminar focuses on algebraic concepts in cryptology. Some topics will cover cryptography, others cryptoanalysis and its application in practice. A strong mathematical background is expected.
Every student has to prepare one topic and give a 45-50 min scientific presentation. Furthermore, a scientific report has to be written in LaTeX and it is expected to actively engage in discussions about other presentations.
