Description

This free online Cryptography training course highlights the increasing need for knowledge about the security of systems and data in this modern digital age. You will learn about the paradigms and principles of modern Cryptography as well as the formal security definitions and constructions of various cryptographic primitives such as Message Authentication Codes, Hash Functions, Digital Signatures and more. The advanced applications of Cryptography will be outlined in the first section of the course. You will learn about the syntax and security definitions of the Symmetric-Key Encryption Scheme. The notion of Perfect Security and its limitations will also be discussed in this section.

Next, you will be introduced to the concepts of computational security where you will study the security properties of Pseudo-Random Generators and Stream Ciphers. You will also consider the practical and theoretical instantiations of Pseudo-Random Generators and the different modes of operations of Block Ciphers. Thereafter, you will learn about the applications of Message Authentication Codes and Cryptographic Hash functions. You will learn how to construct different security ciphers with the use of message authentication codes and cryptographic hash functions. In the next section, you will learn about the properties and various types of Cyclic Groups. You will also consider the relevance of this cryptographic primitive in the security of data.

Lastly, you will learn about the features of the Public key Cryptosystem and its various models. You will study the principles of Identification Schemes, Signature Schemes, Number Theory and Zero Knowledge Protocols; all of which are part of the Asymmetric-Key Encryption Scheme. This course is a great starting point for anyone who is looking to pursue a career in Cryptography or Cybersecurity. It will also be highly relevant to those who want to learn to improve the security of their systems and data. Why wait, start this course today!
