What undergraduate degree will best prepare a person for one of these fields (comp security/cryptography)?

- math

- compsci

...out of the two, which one would better benefit me if I pursue a PhD with. I'm most interested in computer security and cryptography. Cryptography is algorithmic and mathematical in nature, right?

For undergraduate degree, I plan to double in math and compsci, then pursue a PhD in either one - probably math as first choice.

My other plan is a bachelor and master's in EECS then PhD in Mathematics.
