“Electronics & ICT Academy” is being set up at NIT Warangal with financial assistance from DeitY, MCIT, GoI. The jurisdiction of this academy is Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka States and Puducherry, Andaman & Nicobar Islands and Goa UTs. This academy role is to offer faculty development programmes in standardized courses and emerging areas of Electronics, Information Communication Technologies; training & consultancy services for Industry; Curriculum development for Industry; CEP for working professionals; Advice and support for technical incubation and entrepreneurial activities.
Cryptography is a science that applies complex mathematics and logic to design strong encryption methods. Cryptography is also an art. Cryptography allows people to keep confidence in the electronic world. Encryption is the only way to protect our privacy and provide desired level of security. This art of Encryption Decryption lies in the cryptographic algorithms, which provide the locks and keys of this Information Age. Today's world is the age of universal electronic connectivity, our phone calls, e-mails, electronic devices, online electronic transaction passes through various electronic devices. The rapid increase of information transmitted electronically resulted to an increased reliance on cryptography. This leads to a rapid increase in the need of security services such as confidentiality, integrity, authentication etc. These security services are solely depends on cryptographic algorithms. These cryptographic algorithms in turn lie in the heart of Mathematics i.e. in Number Theory.
This faculty development programme (FDP) is designed to address the foundations of cryptography. The fundamental theory, practical aspects and research direction are the major topics to be covered in this programme.
