CYB-5400 Cryptography and Data Security

Cryptography and Data Security is the study of information hiding and verification. It focuses on how cryptographic protocols, algorithms, tools, and techniques work, how to appropriately apply them to prevent or delay unauthorized access to sensitive information, and how to enable verifiability of every component in a communication. Different attacks on cryptographic systems are analyzed and the role of cryptography in data protection, data integrity, privacy, and authentication is thoroughly investigated. Students learn to protect data at rest, in process, and in transition.
