Some of the most recent attacks that have had serious consequences share one thing in common – they all had either none or little effective encryption.

ECES course introduces students to modern symmetric key cryptography including the details of algorithms such as Feistel Networks, DES, and AES as well as an overview of many other algorithms such as Blowfish, Twofish, Skipjack, and others.

The course also covers asymmetric cryptography including thorough descriptions of RSA, Elgamal, Elliptic Curve, and DSA.
