MATH 3010 - Mathematics of Cryptography, Privacy, and Security

Course Description:
This course will explore and highlight how cryptography is used to securely authenticate individuals & devices, and transmit personal, financial & institutional data securely over various public domains.  

Cryptography helps us secure our digital technologies using fundamental mathematical functions and allows only those intended to access and modify encrypted information.  

Without cryptography our modern world would not be possible. If all cryptographic schemes stopped working for a day, our banking system would collapse, internet traffic would come to a halt and communication devices would no longer function.
