Laboratory classes will involve getting familiar with selected implementations of cryptographic algorithms and protocols. Based on this knowledge and your own experiments, you will be asked to solve a set of simple
problems, and prepare a short report including answers to questions included in the corresponding instruction. All exercises can be done at home, at your own speed.
