The lecture serves as an introduction to cryptology and ITSecurity,starting with the basic aspects of security: confidentiality, authenticity and integrity, anonymity, nonrepudiation, authorisation and access control as well as threats and risks in ITSecurity. The relevant results from discrete math are reviewed with special focus on the arithmetics of finite fields and elliptic curves. The discussion of cryptographic mechanisms (symmetric vs. asymmetric cryptography, stream cyphers, hybrid cryptography, oneway and hashfunctions, digital signatures) is succeeded by the inspection of important cryptographic algorithms.
