Modern Public Key Cryptography (SS 2022)

Course Number 705008 and 705008 | Sommersemester 2022


  • Advanced Cryptographic Primitives
  • Public Key Cryptography (public key encryption schemes, signature schemes, commitment schemes, zero knowledge, …)
  • Provable Security (security models, basic ideas of reductionist security proofs)


In this course you will get to know the details of many public-key cryptosystems;

… be able to show the security of common cryptographic schemes by constructing a security proof;

… learn more about advanced aspects of cryptography and cryptographic research.
