General description Multimedia security is an increasingly important topic as most of the information exchanged nowadays over the Internet is multimedia. Traditional data protection solutions like cryptography only solve the problem partially, because contents, once decrypted, are no longer protected. In addition, there is a rising concern over the integrity of multimedia contents: modern editing tools jeopardize our trust on video, images or audio. Fortunately, a number of research groups and companies have addressed these problems and ingenious solutions exist.

This course presents advanced topics in multimedia security, with emphasis on cryptography, watermarking, forensics and signal processing in the encrypted domain.

Contents, teaching and exams are in English. Students may participate in classes and answer to exams preferably in English, but Spanish and Galician are also accepted.
