Description: The Lincoln Laboratory Cipher program is a summer workshop providing an introduction to theoretical cryptography. This summer STEM program is a FREE one-week enrichment class for high-school students who are interested in mathematics or cyber security. Students will learn how to build a secure encryption scheme and digital signature. Time permitting, they will also study some more recent developments in cryptography, like homomorphic encryption and multi-party computation, both of which enable computation over secret data without revealing the data.
