The third workshop that the PhD students and lecturers at the Polytechnic University prepared for us was about cryptology.Until fifty years ago, the transmission of information was of interest only to people who hid or sought treasures, those responsible for armies and Governments, mathematicians or writers who made novels.But nowadays, in the information society, we all use mobile technology and the internet and the privacy of the data that circulates, its integrity and the its authenticity are now matters that affect us all.In this workshop, we have discovered how cryptography has evolved.
