Please include the corresponding information, which is highlighted in bold letters here, in your email:

During the exam you can use a non-graphical, non-programmable calculator as well as the help-sheet (Hilfsblatt - German version) of cryptography, which will be distributed by us at the same time as the exam problems. Bringing your own material is forbidden.
