Cryptography (3+2 SWS, 6 credits. )

Prof. Dr. Werner Schindler Daniel Loebenberger
Integrity, authenticity and secrecy of digital messages are indispensible security requirements for many internet, mobile and smart card applications (home banking, electronic payment systems, e-commerce etc.). These requirements can be ensured by cryptographic mechanisms. This course introduces into the field of cryptography. Algorithms and simple protocols are considered. As far as possible ...

Electronic passports & biometrics (Media Informatics, Computer and Communication Technology. )

Michael Nüsken
Passports shall carry more and more sensitive information in a easily accessible way in the future. This information may, apart from name, origin and the like, contain fingerprints or retina scans. And it is stored in electronic form, and it can be accessed by wireless transmissions. This raises a lot of new problems:
