Prof. Stefano Paraboschi, University of Bergamo


Computer Security is an increasingly important topic, with an impact on many industrial and research domains. This lecture will present the core concepts that underlie the technologies used in this area. The Confidentiality-Integrity Availability paradigm will be described, looking at the main aspects that have to be taken into account in the implementation of each of the services. A concise classification of the main cryptographic primitives will be provided. A perspective on the evolution of this field will be offered.
