Modern Cryptography and Shor's Algorithm

  • 8 videos | 54m 46s
  • Includes Assessment
In this course you'll look at modern cryptography schemes based on one-way functions. Also find out how factoring is performed and whay it's so hard on a classical computer. Then dive into Shor's algorithm and how it can perform the same task in a much more efficient manner.
