Learning outcomes of the course
The student is sufficiently familiar with algebraic theories in order to understand the operation of the most usual encryption algorithms and the basis of encryption. The student understands the basic facts of computational complexity such as the difference between polynomial and superpolynomial work of computation and the idea of probabilistic algorithms.
