Cryptography is a method of storing and transmitting data, in a manner that it is read and processed only by those for whom it is intended to. This helps people to share data and carry out business electronically without deceit and deception, as they would do in the physical world. There is perpetual increase in the number of users who use internet to share information leading to an increased dependency on cryptography. Cryptography aids in making web sites safe for data transmission and e-commerce. This course is aimed to providing awareness of methods used for information security in academic and professional community.
Realising the importance of cryptography and cryptanalysis, India has embanked upon several exercise to create the capacity and capability in this area.
While this course would dwell on the foundations of cryptography and cryptanalysis, it will also focus on contemporary topics for Research and Development. The ISEA members who attend this will surely benefit and help in forming the network of researchers in this area.
Part 1 – Introduction to Cryptography (16 Lectures)
Session 1: Classical Cryptography – A couple of historical cipher, Perfect Security, One-time Pad.
Session 2: Symmetric Key Cryptography – Fundamental concepts (Proof by Reduction), One-way function, Pseudo-random generators, pseudorandom functions), Private Key encryption, MAC, Practical SKEs like AES, RC4
Session 3: Public Key Cryptography – Number Theory, Public Key Encryption, Digital Signature.
Session 4: Cryptanalysis
Part 2 – Selected Topics in Cryptography (16 Lectures)
Session 1: Multiparty Computation
Session 2: Advanced Encryption Schemes such as Id-based and Attributed-based
Session 3: Advanced Cryptanalysis
Session 4: Crypto for the cloud
The post graduate students/ PhD scholars/ researchers/ academicians /Industry personnel with basic knowledge of related field can participate in this program.
Online registration will be available on http://isea-pmu.in/event-registration-publicfrom December 21, 2015.
There will be separate registration for Part 1 and Part 2. Candidates can opt for any or both the parts. If you already have basic exposure to cryptography, you may opt only for Part 2 while registering. The acceptance will be on a first come first basis.
The registration will be free for the selected participants. Limited accommodation will be available in the IISc campus, the cost of which has to borne by the participants.
