This talk examines the design and analysis of pseudo-random sequences with applications in secure and robust communications. The talk will start with the classical algebraic theory of linear and nonlinear sequence generation methods within the context of applications to stream ciphers for fast and secure communications, and will also consider some attacks on stream ciphers.

Linear recurring sequences over finite fields and finite rings are also widely used in mobile communications applications such as CDMA, 3G, as well as 802.11 based wireless networks. The periodic, aperiodic, and partial correlation properties impact the performance of systems utilizing such sequences. These correlation properties will be examined in detail.
