Course Goals

  • Understand the mathematical underpinnings of cryptographic systems and be able to analyze their security.
  • See how a problem-centric approach brings many different ideas and fields of math together to solve problems.
  • Practice communicating mathematical ideas in writing and in  oral communication, and translating technical mathematical ideas for a lay audience.
  • Relate your mathematical knowledge of cryptographic systems to newsworthy events and policy issues.
