This is a self-study course.
There are no lectures or exercises, just the exam.
For any questions, you can contact me.
Information in Peppi:
We are using the electronic exam system on this course.
Read the general instructions carefully:
Note that you cannot use pencil and paper
and you cannot take any material into the exam room.
You can write formulas either as plain text or by using the math tool,
which understands simple TeX commands.
The exam has been designed
so that there is no need to write long computations or complicated formulas.
The exam is based on chapters 1-4 of the lecture notes below.
You should study these chapters and the old exercise problems.
There might be questions of the following types, for example:
Give a definition or describe a concept
(e.g., preimage resistance, MAC-then-encrypt).
Answer a question about a specific system.
The system is described in the question,
so there is no need to memorize the details of particular systems
(e.g., Cipher Block Chaining, Polly Cracker).
Multiple choice question.
Proof (similar to some of the old exercise problems).
