Dixie CryptoCamp

What is it?

This camp is intended for students who are interested in math and computer science as well as making and breaking ciphers and codes. Students will learn the basics of classical and modern mathematical cryptography in a hands-on, applied setting. They will learn to write code to both set up and to break examples of both private-key and public-key cryptosystems. Students will also learn how recent exciting advances in quantum computing are expected to change the world of cryptography, and they will receive a brief introduction to the new and exciting world of post-quantum cryptography. Finally, they will learn about possible career paths for those interested in mathematical cryptography and information security.
