Description

A course description.

The textbook:

Cryptography: Theory and Practice, Third Edition, by Stinson. There will also be notes, including the old Discrete Math notes.
There is an errata list for the third edition of the textbook, maintained by the author.
There are slides which I used in some lectures (reused from DM11).
