General information

The main aim of the course is to introduce a variety of research topics from the fields of Computer security and Cryptology. Participation in the seminar is especially recommended to Bachelor or Master's students who consider specializing in these areas.


A student will be required to write and present a research report on one of the proposed topics. This work is evaluated by PASS or FAIL grade and gives 3 EAP.

There is an option for extended form of participation in the seminar. This option leads to additional 3 EAP and a grade. Typically the student will provide a novel solution or implementation. This is done by taking the individual course (MTAT.07.020 Special Assignment in Cryptography), and it requires agreement of a supervisor and the seminar organizer.
