Cryptography and Computer Security for Undergraduates (Panel, SIGCSE 2004)
I have two goals in teaching cryptography to computer science students: to use cryptography as a cool way of introducing important areas of mathematics and computer science theory and to educate students in something that may be necessary for them to know in the future. For the past two years I have cotaught a course in cryptography at the RoseHulman Institute of Technology with David Mutchler, a colleague from the Computer Science department. The course is crosslisted in both the Computer Science and Mathematics departments, but most of the students are CS majors. The published prerequisites are one quarter of discrete mathematics and two quarters of computer science.
