The Future of Cryptography
What is the future of cryptography?
In this final course of the cryptography program, we look at topics related to cryptography and to the future of secure communication. Current research on quantum cryptography and homomorphic encryption will be examined, and the related topic of steganography (hiding information within other information) will be investigated.
- Quantum cryptography
- Homomorphic encryption
- Cryptography for low-powered devices
- Post quantum cryptography
