Autumn 2005: Recent Developments in Cryptography

[General Information] [Course description] [Course Organization] [Schedule] [Background] [OIS]

General Information

Focus for 2005: Since this will be the first similar seminar in Tartu, it will not have a very concrete focus. Instead, we will look at recent developments in cryptography that should be in the curriculum (Crypto I/II) but are not "there yet". As such, some topics will be accessible to students who take Crypto I in parallel (although, some independent work is to be expected in this case).

Signing up for the seminar

Fastest way: use OIS. If you are not from your university (and thus do not have an account at OIS), or you were too late to register on OIS, then please send an email to the professor by 15 September 2005 with the following information (it is not mandatory, but useful in getting to know your background):

This additional information is not needed if you have participated in Lipmaa's seminars before. Still, please send an email unless you register by OIS.

Registered students (contact us or register in OIS if your name is not here): Sven Laur, Jaak Pruulmann-Vengerfeldt, Kaspar Ilves, Hando Tint, Marko Jõemets, Aleksei Ivanov, Liina Kamm, Konstantin Tretjakov, Alexandre Grebennik, Dan Bogdanov, Kadri Hendla, Oleg Kos^ik.
