W4261 Introduction to Cryptography: Fall 2016 Lecture Summaries

These are brief (possibly non-comprehensive) summaries written shortly after each lecture, of what was covered. Readings refer by default to chapters from the required textbook, though sometimes include pointers to other texts found on the readings webpage, or to materials written by us. The material in class does not always correspond exactly to the material in the textbook: you are responsible for the material taught in class. In particular, often the readings pointed below contain significantly more details and proofs than were covered in class. Conversely, class occasionally contains material that is not in the textbook (I've tried to indicate when this is the case). Please go over the previous class material (using your notes and textbook as appropriate) before every lecture.
