The Computer Science Department at Boston University Metropolitan College offers a sequence of two graduate courses on cryptography. Being mathematical in nature, they lay down a solid foundation of knowledge that can be utilized in semester projects. Two projects are designed which tie together the concepts from both courses to implement real world scenarios in public key infrastructure and web of trust modeling. Several cryptographically secure algorithms are required to be implemented by students to successfully complete these projects.
