Lectures 
Lecture 1:
MWF 10:0010:50 (ENA 233) Instructor: Mike Jacobson Office: ICT 612 Email: jacobs@cpsc Phone: 2109410 Office hours: Friday 11:00  13:00 or by appointment only  
Textbook  There is no required textbook, but you might find the Handbook of Applied Cryptography by Menezes, van Oorschot, and Vanstone useful.  
Grading 
Two components are included in the determination of the course grade.
A percentage grade (ratio of number of marks awarded to the number of marks available) will be computed for each component. An overall percentage grade for the course will then be computed, using the percentage grades awarded for each component, as a weighted average using the weightings listed above. Finally, the overall percentage grade will be converted to a letter grade using the following conversion. (This is the only letter grade that will be used, in this course.)


Exam  There will be no midterm nor final exam. 
News 
Clearly I can't teach you anything about cryptography, and it would be insulting to suggest that you don't know the difference between a code and a cipher, but you may be interested in reminiscences of times gone by and in comparing then and now.
