التفاصيل:

This is a set of lecture notes on cryptography compiled for 6.87s, a one week long course on cryptography taught
at MIT by Sha¯ Goldwasser and Mihir Bellare in the summers of 1996{2002, 2004, 2005 and 2008.
Cryptography is of course a vast subject. The thread followed by these notes is to develop and explain the
notion of provable security and its usage for the design of secure protocols.
Much of the material in Chapters 2, 3 and 7 is a result of scribe notes, originally taken by MIT graduate
students who attended Professor Goldwasser’s Cryptography and Cryptanalysis course over the years, and later
edited by Frank D’Ippolito who was a teaching assistant for the course in 1991. Frank also contributed much
of the advanced number theoretic material in the Appendix. Some of the material in Chapter 3 is from the
chapter on Cryptography, by R. Rivest, in the Handbook of Theoretical Computer Science. Chapters 4, 5, 6,
8, 9 and 11, and Sections 10.5 and 7.4.6, are from the Introduction to Modern Cryptography notes by Bellare
and Rogaway [23], and we thank Phillip Rogaway for permission to include this material. Rosario Gennaro (as
Teaching Assistant for the course in 1996) contributed Section 10.6, Section 12.4, Section 12.5, and Appendix D
to the notes, and also compiled, from various sources, some of the problems in Appendix E.
