About the Organiser

The Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur is a public institution established by the government of India in 1951. It is the first of the IITs to be established and is recognised as an Institute of National Importance. In 2019 it was awarded the status of Institute of Eminence.

About the Programme

The Programme on Advanced Topics of Cryptography is organised by IIT Kharagpur from February 10-14, 2020. The aim of this course is to introduce the areas of cryptography and cryptanalysis to the participants. This course develops a basic understanding of the algorithms used to protect users online and addresses some of the design choices behind these algorithms.

One of the major focus in this course is to build a workable knowledge of mathematics used in cryptology. The course emphasizes to provide a basic understanding of previous attacks on cryptosystems with the aim of preventing future attacks. A wide variety of basic cryptographic primitives will be discussed along with recent developments in some advanced topics like functional encryption, twoparty/multi-party computation, bitcoin and cryptocurrency and post quantum cryptography.
