Course Description

Introduction to Cryptography introduces course participants to the field of cryptography. The participants will learn the foundations of modern cryptography, symmetric, types of cryptography, symmetric key cryptography, asymmetric key cryptography, hash functions, cryptographic algorithms, protocols, stream and block ciphering and other topics including: IPSec, SSL/TLS, OpenPGP, SSH, Kerberos Feistel Networks, traditional DES/3DES, AES, encryption modes of operation and principles of the public key algorithms.

Cryptography is simply expressed as having the concept in a secret code. Such a definition will help the computer security to preserve the authentication, privacy, integrity and confidentiality of data. By taking the TONEX cryptography training, you will understand the main concept of cryptography, classification of ciphers, Stream ciphers, clock control generators, filter generators and combination generators. Moreover, you will learn about block ciphers, their modes of operation and advanced encryption standards (AES).
