Codes & Cryptography

⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️ Join us and learn about the mathematics that keeps our secrets secret! From the simplistic Caesar Cipher, used by Julius Caesar, to the RSA algorithm, which is widely used in the modern world. Due to the availability of committee members, this session will be split into two halves: this week we will look at classical cryptography and RSA. The week after we will look at the strange mathematics of elliptic curve cryptography, and some insights into how this is used in the blockchain in conjunction with the blockchain society! ⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️
