Administrative Information

Previous Knowledge Programming in C/C++ and basics of cryptography. Objective Students gain hands-on knowledge of designing cryptographic primitives on high-end (Intel/AMD) as well as resource-constrained (Arm) software platforms. They gain introductory knowledge of using the Jasmin framework for developing high-assurance cryptography. Language English Teaching Method Lectures will be in-person (1.5 hours integrated lecture and practical session). How to get a grade 100% from practical assignments with oral defense.
