Applied Cryptography


Regular price $3,950.00

This course will focus on core primitives of cryptography (block ciphers, public key algorithms, and hashing), and then work upwards toward modes-of-operation, encryption and authentication primitives. Finally we will understand high level secure protocols built from these underlying components; this includes SSL/TLS, SSH, Electronic Voting, and Crypto Currencies. We will also study vulnerabilities and misconfigurations of these technologies to best understand where practitioners often go wrong during an implementation. 

No application is required for individual courses and course bundles. Course readiness is to be determined by the student based upon information provided in the course descriptions on this site.
