This is an introductory course on the methods, algorithms, techniques, and tools of data security and cryptography. After studying the theoretical aspects of cryptographic algorithms and protocols, we show how these techniques can be integrated to solve particular data and communication security problems. This course material is of use to computer and communication engineers who are interested in embedding security into an information system, and thus, providing integrity, confidentiality, and authenticity of the documents and the communicating parties.

Responsibilities (tentative)
· Homework assignments: There will be about four homework assignments. You will be required to write programs in Python programming language. · Term project: Students are required to work on a term project. It is essential for students to meet time schedule of the projects. Project groups must provide a demonstration/presentation of their work. During the demonstration/presentation, all the project members must be present. Students may work in groups of two. Grading
