Cryptography uses different methods to protect data. Explore different methods used to protect or transmit data securely, and some of the components that ensure data can be protected.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Describe how opt, or one-time pad, cryptography can theoretically provide perfect secrecy but has some significant limitations
    Describe and use a substitution cipher and understand the weaknesses that can be exploited by an attacker against these ciphers
    Describe and identify the features and use cases for symmetric-key cipher algorithms
    Describe and identify the features and use cases for asymmetric-key cipher algorithms
  • Describe the use of steganography in encryption products to hide the fact data is even encrypted
    Describe the purpose of cryptographic hash functions and how they can be used in cryptography to provide data integrity
    Describe a digital signature and how it can be used for authentication and non-repudiation
    Identify the cryptographic algorithm to use
