    This course provides a broad introduction to cornerstones of security (authenticity, confidentiality, message integrity and non-repudiation) and the mechanisms to achieve them as well as the underlying mathematical basics. Topics include block and stream ciphers, public-key systems, key management, certificates, public-key infrastructure (PKI), digital signature, non-repudiation and message authentication. Various security standards and protocols such as DES, AES, PGP and Kerberos, are studied. Prerequisite: CMP 431.
