👍🏻"Cryptography: Boolean functions and related problems" course launched on Coursera from the teachers of the Cryptographic Center! 14 Jan 2020

The course invites you to learn more about cryptography; you'll learn some important math which stands behind the ciphers, and defines how resistant the particular cipher will be to different types of attacks.

The key topics covered in the course:

* how cryptography developed in Russia and in the Soviet Union, including the facts which used to be top secret until very recent times;

* Boolean functions and S-boxes, and how the resistance of a cipher depends on a cryptographic properties of a Boolean function;

* methods of cryptanalysis * some special and most intriguing types of cryptographic Boolean functions: bent functions and APN-functions (Almost Perfect Nonlinear Functions)

* AI and ML for cryptography.

Welcome to the course, and enjoy your learning!

We invite you to participate in the Sixth International Cryptography Olympiad NSUCRYPTO-2019! 10 Oct 2019

We are inviting you to take part in The Sixth International Olympiad in Cryptography NSUCRYPTO’2019.
Everybody can participate: school students, university students, professionals!
It consists of two independent Internet rounds:
- the first round (individual) will be held on October 13, 2019;
- the second round (team) will be held during October 14 – October 21, 2019.
You could find more information at the Olympiad website.
