Students are introduced to the need for encryption and simple techniques for breaking (or cracking) secret messages. They try their own hand at cracking a message encoded with the classic Caesar cipher and also a Random Substitution Cipher. Students should become well-acquainted with the need for secrecy when sending information over the Internet, and that in an age of powerful computational tools, techniques of encryption will need to be more sophisticated.Do you have information on this course?
