1 Overview of the assessment:
In this assignment, you will first investigate the literature of Asymmetric Cryptography and then you need to relate your work in Assignment 1 and write a report on it.
2 Description of the assessment:
The assignment consists of three steps – i) Writing a literature on Asymmetric Cryptography ii) Relate your assignment 1 with literature and iii) Write a report on the project that you have demonstrated in Assignment 1.
***You should work on your assignment progressively in full co-ordination with your tutor.
2.1 Literature Survey
In the first step, you need to write a literature on asymmetric cryptography. Your literature should be supported by 3-4 research articles.
2.2 Relate Assignment 1
In this step, you need to relate your task that you have demonstrated in assignment 1, with the literature investigated in previous step.
2.3 Report on Task
In this step, you will write a report on the task that you have used for assignment 1 demonstration.
All used sources must be properly acknowledged with references and citations, if you did not create it. Quotations and paraphrasing are allowed but the sources must be acknowledged. Failure to do so is regarded as plagiarism and the minimum penalty for plagiarism is failure for the assignment. The act of given your assignment to another student is classified as a plagiarism offence. Copying large chucks and supplying a reference will result in zero marks as you have not contributed to the report. Copying from Youtube or other videos is also plagiarism (including transcripts). Citation in a video can be included as credits at the end.
4 Due Date & Submission
The report is due at Week 11
- Please download the IEEE Conference Template from the MOODLE
- You need to use the template to write your report
- The report should be in between 3-4 pages.
- Upload your report into the MOODLE
Late submission of assignments will be penalised as follows:
- For assignments 1 to 5 days late, a penalty of 10% (of total available marks) per
- For assignments more than 5 days late, a penalty of 100% will
Your submission must be compatible with the software (PDF/Word/Video) in MIT, Computer Laboratories/Classrooms.
Extensions: Under normal circumstances extensions will not be granted. In case of extenuating circumstances— such as illness—a Special Consideration form, accompanied by supporting documentation, must be received before 3 working days from the due date. If granted, an extension will be only granted only by the time period stated on the documentation; that is, if the illness medical certificate was for one day, an extension will be granted for one day only. Accordingly the student must submit within that time limit.
Penalties may apply for late submission without an approved extension.
Penalties: Academic misconduct such as cheating and plagiarism incur penalties ranging from a zero result to program exclusion.
