OBJECTIVES OF THE COURSE: Cryptology is employed to communicate securely, authenticate messages and sign digitally. This QIP course “Introduction to Cryptology” is designed for both computer science and mathematics teachers interested in the basics of the subject. This course touches upon the most important ideas and techniques of the present day cryptology. An introduction to quantum computation and quantum cryptography is also included as a new element. All the pre-requisite topics are revised during the lectures making this course self-contained and accessible to a wider audience.
