Continue preparing for the Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) certification exam with this 14-video course, which explores how cryptography can be used to provide confidentiality and integrity for data at rest, and data in transit. You will learn how to acquire a PKI (public key infrastructure), and how to generate a random key to feed into an encryption algorithm. Next, you will examine data hashing and salting. Examine how symmetric and asymmetric encryption provides data confidentiality, and about ECC (elliptic curve cryptography), an asymmetric, cryptographic algorithm. Learners will then explore secure network protocols, including SSL (secure sockets layer), to provide cryptographic functions such as encryption, message authentication, and integrity. This course demonstrates the use of cryptanalysis to identify security flaws, and how to enable IPsec (Internet security protocol) to secure network traffic, and have it applied to all TCP/IP (transmission control protocol/Internet protocol) network traffic. Finally, you will explore how the Telnet and SSH (secure shell) protocols are used for remote administration of things like Linux, Unix, Windows computers.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • explain how cryptography can protect IT solutions and how the implementation is often influenced by regulations
    describe how hashing relates to integrity using algorithms such as HMAC
    generate a hash for a file to ensure it is authentic and has not been corrupted
    describe how key lengths relate to cryptographic strength
    explain how symmetric encryption uses a single key to protect data
    explain how asymmetric encryption uses related keys to protect data
    describe ECC cryptography
  • provide examples of how malicious users can attack cryptographic implementations
    describe how unique digital signatures provide message authenticity
    explain when to use SSL/TLS, S/MIME, IPSec, and DKIM
    configure IPSec in a Windows environment
    demonstrate why Telnet remote administration should never be used
    determine which cryptographic solutions best meets security needs
