Synopsis:

The Information Security course provides a complete source of information on the field of security of information systems and information technologies. The most of information in today society is created, transferred, stored in electronic form so information security is very important part of it. Technical background for information security is provided by cryptology.

1. Knowledge of modular arithmetics and algebra.

2. ISO/OSI network model, knowledge of computer networks principles

3. Programming in high-level languages (Java,C#, C/C++)

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Introduction to Cryptology, Basic Terms, Historical Overview

2. Block ciphers

3. Cryptographic Modes of Operation

4. Stream Ciphers
