Course Description

In today's day and age, we must be encrypting data for secure communication with third parties. But how is this accomplished? In this course, you'll examine Public Key Infrastructure as an encryption solution. You'll also explore PKI components, process, and how it compares with self-signed certificates. As long as there has been encrypted data, there have been attempts to break those encryptions. You'll next learn about cryptanalysis methods and attacks used to reveal hidden messages. Finally, you'll explore how to deploy the right encryption in the right way by learning about best practices and strategies for keeping your data safe. This course is one in a series that helps to prepare you for the Certified Ethical Hacker v11 (312-50) exam.
