About this book
Introduction
This companion exercise and solution book to A Classical Introduction to Cryptography: Applications for Communications Security contains a carefully revised version of teaching material. It was used by the authors or given as examinations to undergraduate and graduatelevel students of the Cryptography and Security Lecture at EPFL from 2000 to mid2005.
A Classical Introduction to Cryptography Exercise Book for A Classical Introduction to Cryptography: Applications for Communications Security covers a majority of the subjects that make up today's cryptology, such as symmetric or publickey cryptography, cryptographic protocols, design, cryptanalysis, and implementation of cryptosystems. Exercises do not require a large background in mathematics, since the most important notions are introduced and discussed in many of the exercises.
The authors expect the readers to be comfortable with basic facts of discrete probability theory, discrete mathematics, calculus, algebra, as well as computer science. Following the model of A Classical Introduction to Cryptography: Applications for Communications Security, exercises related to the more advanced parts of the textbook are marked with a star.
