Core Principles of Cryptography

This module discusses all the core principles of Cryptography: Authentication, Availability, Confidentiality and Integrity.  You’ll learn how companies and penetration testers use these to their advantage and you’ll learn some of the techniques they use along the way.

The topics explored in the Cryptography Module include:

  • Whiteboard, which explains the interrelationship and the basic principles you must master for this module
  • And the following simulation labs:
    • Hash My Files Lab
    • Hash Calc Lab
    • CryptTool Lab
    • Advanced Encryption Package Lab

The Cryptography as a field is quite in depth.  We explore this in great detail in our Cryptography and CompTIA CASP courses.
