Advanced Cryptography Term Papers
CSCI-762, Spring 2020

Choosing a Topic

In general, I prefer more algorithm and cryptography oriented focus, but security topics (with significant cryptography component) are also fine.


First step, due February 10 (Mon)

You may still have doubts what is your choice of subject, but you have to complete the steps below. This term project is evaluated individually, but you can work with somebody else in pair to make a two-part single subject study.


Second step, February 25 (Tue)

All students have a good idea of the subjects of their term papers. Write a somewhat longer abstract, put an overview, table of contents, some definitions, etc. Include in the paper website the main sources and references used in your project. We will review in class all proposed topics, suggest modifications and settle possible team work. Use of beamer for slides is recommended :-)


Third step, March 19 (Thu) and March 24 (Tue)

So, the skeletons of your projects are fixed ... We will review all projects in class, about 10 minutes each.


Fourth step, presentations, April

Final papers due Tuesday, May 5
