Cryptography is implemented using discrete mathematics with security defined in complexity theory. In this article, we review some cryptographic primitives for encryption, signing messages and interactive proofs. By combining cryptographic primitives, we can design and digitally implement various services with desired features in security, privacy and fairness. We will discuss some examples such as electronic voting and cryptocurrencies.
