|This STC is essential for enhancing the vision of faculty members and research scholars by exposing them to the new development taking place in cryptographic engineering. The main objective of this STC is to enrich the faculty knowledge and will provide excellent opportunity to exchange ideas on the topic of importance along with thought provoking technical sessions. The foundation of cryptographic engineering helps in understanding the current research areas and problems in different field of data Security.
Cryptographic Engineering's goal is to provide unbiased security evaluations and expert witness testimony. Cryptography is typically applied when trying to ensure data confidentiality, to authenticate people or devices, or to verify data integrity in risky environments. It encompasses mathematics (algebra, finite groups, rings, and fields), computer engineering (hardware design, ASIC, embedded systems, FPGAs) and computer science (algorithms, complexity theory, software design). The security and privacy of the information needs to be addressed at all levels from the individual user to an organization and to that of the government. India lacks professional manpower to overcome this security threats. Realizing the important of cryptographic engineering as one of the focused area, Department of Information Technology under Ministry of Communications & Information Technology, Government of India started the Information Security Education & Awareness (ISEA) Project. NIT Patna is one of the participating institute of ISEA project.
