Lecture contents

In this lecture basic principles of cryptography such as symmetric and asymmetric encryption as well as data security will be discussed. The main topics are for example the process of encryption and decryption of data, digital signatures, general cryptographic protocols and the practical field of operation of these mechanisms. Current approaches like elliptic curves are also dealt with. In addition to the related key management aspects like the comprehensive security infrastructure will be addressed. Tangible examples of use are shown for illustration and for getting familiar with the functionality.

Lector: Dipl.-Ing. Manuel Koschuch, Bakk.techn.

2SWS
3ECTS

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.
