Introduction to Cryptography (Online)
The importance of protecting information and data makes it into headlines every day. Cryptography is the practice of techniques used to protect the secure transmission of information. This course is an excellent starting point to understand what cryptography is, learn how cryptography used, and understand hash, symmetric, and asymmetric cryptographic algorithms.
This course not only covers the fundamentals of cryptography, but also provides a hands-on experience through the use of live virtual machine labs, lab simulations, and case projects. Hands-on projects will have you use stenography to send a hidden message, use a has generator, and even have you use Microsoft's Encrypting File System.
A basic knowledge of cryptography is needed for many careers such as cyber security, software development, computer networks, and database administration.
Don’t just learn about cryptography, roll your sleeves up, and get to actually so cryptography with the labs, simulations, and projects in this course.
