2 SWS   3 ECTS

Lecture contents

An important part of a comprehensive academic education is to aquire the qualification to treat problem statements from a scientific point of view. Therefore, an introduction to scientific work, writing, and well established methodologies will be taught in this course.

Assessment methods

The evaluation is based on the submitted material (disposition, paper, reviews) as well as on the presentations.

Teaching methods

During this course a scientific conference will be simulated. After a brief introduction to scientific writing, the attendees of this course shall treat a problem statement of a given field of research for which they shall prepare disposition that briefly describes the chosen topic. Based on it, a draft version of the scientific article will be written (draft paper). Afterwards, these draft versions of the papers will be critically reviewed by other colleagues (peer reviewing). Based on their reviews, a revised version of the scientific paper shall be created (camera-ready paper). At the end of this course, the scientific papers will be presented by the authors.

The course tries to bridge the gap between the pure "textbook" version of cryptographic algorithms and their application in actual systems. Symmetric techniques like DES and especially AES with its most important variants are described in detail, as well as padding techniques, and selected chapters from PKCS. These topics are complemented by notes on the practical implementation of the long number arithmetic necessary for cryptographic primitives.
