Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to analyze and evaluate cryptographic procedures and correct their weak points.
 
In order to understand the properties of a cryptographic algorithm, we will first demonstrate them based on the implementation of a theoretical specification. Students will be able to break down procedures into their logical components and illustrate their application problems by comparing them with known procedures. They will be capable of deriving attack techniques from theoretical results or generating new ones. Lastly, they will be able to assess the security of a procedure or a modification thereof.
