The intent of the **Advanced Cryptography** Knowledge Unit is to provide students with knowledge of cryptographic algorithms, protocols, and their uses in the protection of information in various states.

## Contents

## Outcomes[edit]

After completing the KU, students will be able to:

- Describe how various cryptographic algorithms and protocols work.
- Evaluate security mechanisms based on cryptography.
- Describe the application of cryptography in SSL, virtual private networks, secure storage, and other security applications.
- Take a mode or protocol diagram and identify how an error propagates through the cryptosystem.

## Topics[edit]

- Number Theory
- Probability and Statistics
- Understanding of the major algorithms (AES, RSA, EC)
- Suite B Algorithms
- Understanding of the families of attacks (differential, man-in-the-middle, linear, etc.)
- Hashing and Signatures
- Key Management
- Modes and appropriate uses
- Classical Cryptanalysis (a la Konheim)
- Identity-based Cryptography
- Digital Signatures
- Virtual Private Networks
- Quantum Key Cryptography
