The Information Security course provides a complete source of information on the field of security of information systems and information technologies. The most of information in today society is created, transferred, stored in electronic form so information security is very important part of it. Technical background for information security is provided by cryptology.

Course outlines:

1. Introduction to cryptology, historical overview
   2. Block ciphers    3. Block ciphers modes of operation    4. Stream ciphera    5. Public key cryptosystems    6. Hash functions    7. Authentication protocols    8. Virtual Private Networks - IPsec    9. Cryptographic protocols - SSL / TLS, DTLS, SSH   10. X.509 certificate, certificate authority public key infrastructure   11. Securing e-mail communication - S / MIME, PGP   12. Electronic signature, electronic identity   13. APT (Advanced Persistent Threats)   14. Laws and standards in the field of information security

Exercises outline:

1. Introduction, passing conditions, health and safety regulations
2. Cryptanalysis of monoalplhabetic substitutions
3. Cryptanalysis of polyalphabetic substitutions
