Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The goal is to study and master the basic crytpographic techniques and procedures used in computer networks, and broader in network communication. Modern methods for detection and prevention of information leakage will be presented. Student will be able to formulate and solve nonstandard problems in authentication, time stamping, integrity of messages, ellectronic signature, will be able to apply cryptographic primitives in cryptogtaphic shemes and protocols, will understand and able to apply also secret sharing schemes and secure group communication schemes. Students will be able to construct secure random number generators, and they will have all basic information concerning cryptographic standards.

Course contents:
1. Finite fields theory
2. Random numbers generators
3. Hash functions,Merkle-Damgard's construction, ďfurther constructions, dedicated hash functions.
4. Cryptographic primitives, pprocedures for construction of secure communication channels, communication, login, authentication and signature protocols.
5. Analysis of practical security measures.
6. Formulation and solving of problems of today secure communication.
7. Secure group communication.
8. Secure cionferencing.
9. Secret sharing schemes.
