Kryptografins grunder, 4 poäng
period 3 03/04
We have now terminated the course evaluations. Here
you can find the result and
also a short course analysis.
Both are in Swedish.
A short not on pseudorandom generators is now published as
this was covered poorly in the course book. This short
note essentially covers the lecture given.

Rafael Pass will help grading homework, and there might
be some guest lecture(s).
Log unto a unix computer at nada and give the following two commands
res checkin krypto04
course join krypto04
If you do not do this your results cannot be reported and you will
miss vital information related to the course.

The homework sets are supposed to be challenging, and even getting a
passing grade (the grade 3) will require some effort. Keep in
mind however that you do not have to solve all the problems to get a
good grade. The idea is that it is better to solve some of the
problems well than to solve all the problems partially, and solutions
will be graded with this in mind.
Please note the rules that apply to the
homework. Be sure to read both the
homework rules and the
code of honours before you start working on the problems!
