What is Cryptography and how does it work? These are the questions we will be examining in our cryptography introductory series below. Though this course is a compilation of videos from our other courses, we put together this study for those who want to cut out some of the other content and focus directly on cryptography. Get started learning Cryptography online, for free, now!
In this online course we will be examining how cryptography is the cornerstone of security technologies, and how through its use of different encryption methods, such as ciphers, and public or private keys, you can protect private or sensitive information from unauthorized access. Often associated with privacy, Cryptography offers four basic services: Confidentiality, Integrity, Authenticity / Availability, and Non-Repudiation. This course offers practical examples for everyday use, to provide better understanding of these concepts.
In our brief online Cryptography course, you’ll learn about the difference between clear text and cypher text, compare different encryption types, how encryption works, and how to secure and compare data through the use of hashing.
We hope you enjoy this class taught by a couple of our many knowledgeable Subject Matter Experts, Leo Dregier and Kelly Handerhan.
