The goal of the Post Master's degree is to provide advanced skills and a cutting-edge experience in a wide range of Digital Security applications. The strength of the program relies on a multi-faceted approach dealing with key fields of security applications: Security of Software, Embedded Systems, Cloud computing, Data, IoT, Networks, and Communications.


With the fast development of computer and communication systems in our private and professional life, today have come fraud and malevolence in various forms.

In the past decades' technical means to counter these attacks have experienced a tremendous growth and the birth of entirely new fields:

  • The large-scale use of cryptography by the general public,
  • Software, operating system, and network security,
  • Secure Internet transactions,
  • Security of mobile and wireless communications,
  • Rights management and protection of multimedia content.


The Post Master's degree offers the necessary technical knowledge for engineers responsible for designing secure systems and system administrators responsible for ensuring computer and network security within a company or a public authority.

The following security topics will be covered:

  • cryptography and its applications
