Courses offered by our faculty

The focus of our cryptography related classes is on implementation aspects of cryptographic algorithms, protocols, and systems. We examine the trade-off between security and efficiency and the close integration of cryptography, computer security and communications. Through projects and labs, students get acquainted with various means of implementing security transformations in both software and hardware. Course homepages of the latest offerings can be found on the ECE Courses webpage and can be directly searched for through the Course History feature. Course descriptions of all course are in the GMU Catalog.
