Okay so im going to start graduate school in cybersecurity soon and i need a laptop that i can use for this. Now i know that a laptop with 16gb ram and 512gb ssd is more than sufficient to complete all of my work and learn.
But the field I’m interested in is cryptography but to be honest I have not done any project or worked in it practically. I have just started to do HTB’s in it or learn it. My question is do projects involving cryptography need a dedicated GPU. I haven’t done any so i am clueless about it and id appreciate some advice in this area. For example one of the really interesting research papers and projects i read about was steganography using deep learning.
