IIT Bhilai is taking rapid strides to make its mark in the field of cryptography at a global level.
The following courses have been offered in cryptography by now at IIT Bhilai:
- Cryptography (CS553)
- Cryptographic Protocol (CS601)
- Lightweight Cryptography (CS503)
Many other courses including core cryptographic concepts have also been introduced into the curriculum such as:
- Electronic Payment System (CS513)
- Blockchain Technologies (CS554)
Popular topics such as differential and linear cryptanalysis are introduced to students via toy examples and later delved into the technicalities of their applications in practical scenarios.
Thus enhancing the interest of the students along with strengthening their base in various cryptographic concepts. Sufficient emphasis is provided on the basic concepts involved in the design of AES (Advanced Encryption Standards) to make the students well-versed with one of the most secure ciphers of our time.
Extensive research is being carried out in the field of cryptography by dedicated personnel from
the IIT Bhilai family which includes faculties, PhD scholars, masters and bachelor students.
