Cryptographic mistakes you should avoid

Samuel S. Wagstaff, Jr. - CERIAS

Feb 05, 2003


The speaker has taught a Cryptography and Data Security course many
times in the past twenty years at Purdue University. One feature of
this class is a large project, counting about one-third of the total
grade, in which each student implements some cryptographic system.
This lecture describes some errors discovered in the grading of these
projects. Cryptographers should learn to avoid these mistakes, some of
which are subtle.

Unless otherwise noted, the security seminar is held on Wednesdays at 4:30P.M. STEW G52, West Lafayette Campus. More information...
