Cryptography and its Applications to Networking and e-Commerce

Speaker:  Tassos Dimitriou – Athens, Greece
Topic(s):  Networks and Communications


With the arrival of the Information Age, cryptography has grown to be an essential tool for a wide segment of networking and industry. It can be used to protect all forms of electronic communications used in everyday activities.  Cryptography can replace the sealed envelope of a paper-oriented system and ensure privacy on electronic media. More important is its ability to prevent forgery of electronic documents, and to supply mutual authentication of senders and recipients of these documents. Without such tools, wide-scale networking and commerce applications would be impossible. 
The main focus of this lecture will be to provide background knowledge on the field of cryptography and its applications to secure networking and electronic commerce. Topics include and are not limited to cryptographic primitives and protocols, key management and access control, real-world protocol standards (IPSec, SSH, SSL, Kerberos, etc.) and some more esoteric protocols (Zero Knowledge, coin flipping over the telephone, etc.)
