Prerequisites for registration:
Assesment methods:
There will be two written exams worth 20 points each, one assignment from discrete programming and a final 24h assignment worth 40 points. The student needs to have at least 92 points for grade A, for grade B at least 83 points, for grade C at least 74 points, for grade D at least 65 points and for grade E at least 56 points. Student with less than 20 points after the two written exams will not be given the credit.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The goal is to gain knowledge in the basic theoretical and practical approaches in classical ciphers, to know the historical background of their development and use in real-life; and to be informed with the lives of the important historic figures that helped to develop the classical ciphers. The subject also broadens students' experience in discrete programming techniques.
Course contents:
1. Basic terminology
2. The evolution of cryptographic algorithms
3. Ciphers and permutations
4. The basics of modular arithmetics
5. Statistical properties of language
6. Anagrams and transposition ciphers
7. Substitution algorithms
8. Computers and classical ciphers
