Traditional cryptography was no longer considered with the publication of Claude Elwood Shannon’s papers around 1948, revolutionizing the world of cryptography. One of the topics of this time was the study of this evolution and Shannon’s work, as well as another great evolution called Asymmetric Cryptography, which was created twenty years after the Shannon. Security is an integral part of any system, including computer networks, telecommunications networks, and mobile networks. All system architects must have a deep consciousness of security. This course is an introduction to the concepts of security and students will have the opportunity to get acquainted with various topics by doing several practical projects. In general, our students will receive the following topics during this course:
- The basic concepts in the network security,
- Mathematics in the Asymmetric Cryptography,
- Symmetric Cryptography,
- Security in computer networks.
