Course Overview

The objective of this course is to familiarize the students with current research in cryptography. This course is a special topics course (as opposed to a breadth or diversity course); and we'll focus on certain topics in depth. A strong focus will be put on exploring cryptographic systems that deliver functionality beyond what is seen in an introductory cryptography course. In addition, attention will be given to developing rigorous proofs for the security of such systems. An important goal of this course is to encourage class discussion and interaction. In addition, each student will give a twenty minute presentation of a paper (or subject) meant to simulate a conference talk. Some students may alternatively elect to do a course project.
