Welcome to the Authentication Protocols and Technology Skills Course & Certification Test
Authentication is mostly automatic, but understanding the protocols, policies, and other elements involved can help you configure and manage authentication- and strengthen security. In a recent post by CAMI, they discuss why multi-factor authentication is necessary for healthcare organizations. But this necessity extends far beyond the healthcare industry, as the need to secure data becomes more important than ever. A type of computer communications protocol, or cryptographic protocol, authentication protocol is specifically designed for transfer of authentication data between two entities. The task of the authentication protocol is to specify the exact series of steps needed for execution of the authorization. It is considered to be the most important layer of protection needed for safe communication within networks. There are various types of authentication protocols that come in the form of codes, for example a PIN, objects, like a smart card, and biometrics, such as a fingerprint. Understanding the different facets of authentication is only part of the skillset needed by Security Professionals. The Authentication Protocol skills certification test teaches specific types of authentication such as LDAP, Kerberos, and explores what their purposes are, as well as their relationship to the protocol stack they engage. You will also gain an understanding of the main protocol principles to ensure compliance.
