arabic Describtion/Outcomes
objectives This is an introductory course on the methods, algorithms, techniques, and tools of data security and cryptography. After studying the theoretical aspects of cryptographic algorithms and protocols, we show how these techniques can be integrated to solve particular data and communication security problems. This course material is of use to computer and communication engineers who are interested in embedding security into an information system, and thus, providing integrity, confidentiality, and authenticity of the documents and the communicating parties.
