of Mathematics, IIT Kharagpur organizes a short term course
entitled "aDVANCED tOPICS IN CRYPTOGRAPGHY" from 27
June - 03 July 2017.
aim of this course is to introduce the areas of cryptography and
cryptanalysis to the participants. This course develops a basic understanding
of the algorithms used to protect users online and addresses some of the
design choices behind these algorithms. One of the major focus in this course
is to build a workable knowledge of mathematics used in cryptology. The
course emphasizes to provide a basic understanding of previous attacks on
cryptosystems with the aim of preventing future attacks. A wide variety of
basic cryptographic primitives will be discussed along with recent
developments in some advanced topics like functional encryption,
two-party/multi-party computation and post quantum cryptography.

Participants of the program are faculty members,
students, working professionals from different institutions, research &
development organizations and industries. The participants can attend the
course at IIT Kharagpur. The course is FREE
for teachers of AICTE approved degree level
Engineering collage, whereas there is a course fee for other participants.
participants (faculty) AICTE approved degree
level Engineering collage must submit the certificate from the college
authority, in which it must be mention that, your college is AICTE
approved. TA for AICTE participants is limited maximum of AC-3 Tier Railway
fare on shortest route only.
there are only a few seats available,
early-bird registrants will be given preference. However, there will be a
rigorous selection procedure for the course.
participants (excluding AICTE institution) will be responsible for all
expenses, including accommodation, travel, and food.
However, on the immediate request from the participants, the accommodation
can be tried to be arranged (on self-payment-basis in some
hostels/guestrooms) inside the IIT campus, based on availability. Best
possible available arrangements will be attempted to be made. However, the
course coordinator will not be responsible to meet the quality expectations
of the participants in all academic and non-academic aspects.
On successful completion of the course, certificate of participation will be issued to all
the candidates by the Continuing Education office of IIT Kharagpur, on the
recommendation from the Coordinator.
