Although cryptography isn't covered until domain 5 of the SSCP CBK, potential exam candidates and security professionals will benefit from foundational knowledge of cryptosystems early in their training. Use this course to grasp the reasons and requirements for cryptography in safe-guarding information, including regulations and governance. Investigate cryptographic techniques, such as hashing and salting, symmetric and asymmetric encryption, and elliptic curve cryptography. Discover what's involves in digital signatures and certificates. Explore cryptographic attacks, cryptanalysis, and countermeasures. And delve into advanced cryptosystems, such as quantum computing and blockchain. Upon course completion, you'll be aware of the various traditional and modern cryptology techniques used to protect data and communications. This course will help you in the lead-up to taking the (ISC)² Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) 2021 exam.
