## CS 388H: CryptographyUniversity of Texas at Austin – Fall 2021
## DescriptionThis course surveys the foundations of cryptography from formal notions of security to fundamental protocols, including one-way functions, encryption, pseudorandom generators, signature schemes, and zero-knowledge. At the end of the semester, we will focus on an in-depth exploration of cryptographic proof systems. ## Meeting Time and Place
## Logistics
## PrerequisitesThis is a theory course and we will assume that you are comfortable with mathematical proofs. We recommend that you have taken a theory of computation course (e.g., CS 353) and an algorithms course (e.g., CS 331). A basic understanding of probability theory (e.g., MATH 362K) and modular arithmetic will also be helpful. ## Reference MaterialThroughout the semester, we will post additional reference material here: |
