MTH 275 - Mathematical Cryptography


Students explore the mathematical foundation attacks, and historical significance of various ciphers. Mathematical topics include modular arithmetic, elementary number theory, elementary combinatorics, and Boolean algebra. Cryptographic topics include shift ciphers, substitution ciphers, block ciphers, Hill Cipher, Vigenere Cipher, the Enigma machine, RSA, DES/3DES Rijndael Cipher/AES, and TLS/SSL. The emphasis will be on understanding the underlying mathematics, so previous programming experience is not necessary.
Prerequisites: MTH-125
