In today's world, large amounts of sensitive data is transmitted over wired and wireless communication media. Cryptography plays a crucial role in securing this data. In this course we would study different algorithms used in modern day cryptography. We would understand the design objectives, trade offs, and their implementation. We would also look at various techniques to attack the algorithm, and side channel attacks that target the cipher's implementation.
