Overview/Description
Gain an advanced knowledge of cryptographic systems, life cycles, techniques, and methodologies. This course introduces you to cryptology and cryptographic systems. It then examines integrity and hashing in relation to cryptography, explores cryptographic methods and techniques, and discusses the nature of cryptanalytic attacks. You will then learn about the phases of the cryptographic life cycle, digital signatures, and the use and function of public key infrastructure (PKI). From there, you will go on to consider key management practices, such as key stretching, pinning, key escrow, and hardware security modules (HSM). Finally, as a review exercise, you will list three types of ciphers, three types of cryptographic hashing, and three different hashing algorithms.
