Detailed Course Content

This class is intended as the continuance of the theoretical path started with the course “Cryptography” and represents a bridge towards the practice. It starts introducing the required implementation tools. Then the course introduces the principles for a correct implementation by means of the analysis of some real world protocols (modern standards) and several effective cryptography attacks.

The class includes also an integrative theoretical part on some advanced topics in Cryptography.
