Students will be able to assess the security of symmetric and public-key cryptosystems against different types of attacks, because they have been familiarized with typical attack techniques.
They can configure cryptosystems, understand their implementation and point out possible weaknesses.
After a detailed analysis, they can draw up a proposal to increase the security level for a given application scenario.
