Project description:

In the Russian cards problem, Alice, Bob and Cath draw three, three and one 
cards, respectively, from a deck of seven. Alice and Bob must then communicate 
their entire hand to each other, without Cath learning the owner of a single 
card. Unlike many traditional problems in cryptography, however, they are not 
allowed to hide or codify the messages they exchange from Cath. The problem is 
then to find methods through which they can achieve this. We have several 
methods that generalize the original Russian cards problem to different deck 
sizes and deals. The purpose of this project is the extend some of these 
methods and develop applications to cryptography.
