Cryptographic protocols allow parties with potentially conflicting interests to jointly perform certain tasks. This course covers basic and advanced constructions for cryptographic protocols and their applications, including Commitments, Secure Coin Flipping, Zero-Knowledge Proofs, Mixnets, Anonymous Credentials, Private Information Retrieval, Secure Multiparty Computation, and Hardware-assisted Cryptographic Protocols.
Basic knowledge in cryptography is strongly recommended, e.g., by successfully completing the course “Introduction to Cryptography”.
Due to the ongoing corona virus pandemic, we will run CRYPROT 2021 as an online course:
- Lectures will be given via Zoom. Additionally, we will provide recordings of the lectures via Moodle.
- Group exercises will also be given via Zoom.
