Cryptography is far more than just selecting an algorithm and calling the encrypt or decrypt method. Explore secure communications using SSH, disk encryption, key strength considerations, cryptanalysis, and side-channel attacks.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • identify web browser-based secure communications and the role of certificates and Certificate Authorities (CAs)
    describe of use of SSL and TLS in security tools like the Secure Shell, or SSH
    use GPG to encrypt and decrypt an e-mail message
    describe how disk encryption works and the threats it can help protect against
  • identify the features and strengths of cryptographic algorithms and how to select an algorithm for a particular usage scenario
    perform some basic cryptanalysis and describe methods to decrypt poorly encrypted data
    identify external methods that can be used to compromise, or bypass, a cryptographic system
    apply cryptographic modes and algorithms
