The amount of knowledge that seems to be required to get going with cryptography can be daunting. This course will teach you what you need to know to comfortably interact with the different applications of cryptography that we use every day.
As a software professional, you work with cryptography in multiple ways every day and the sheer amount of knowledge needed just to get going with cryptography seems daunting. In this course, Applied Cryptography: Getting Started, you’ll learn how cryptography is employed in the software development world. First, you’ll explore how to employ cryptography to secure data. Next, you’ll discover how cryptography is used to validate an identity. Finally, you’ll learn how you can use cryptography to securely process data on machines you don’t even control. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of applied cryptography needed to comfortably interact with the different applications of cryptography that you use every day.
Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Ed Curren, and welcome to my course, Getting Started with Cryptography. We work with cryptography in multiple ways every day, and the sheer amount of knowledge that seems to be required just to get going with cryptography can seem daunting. It's a topic that seemingly becomes more important each day though. In this course, you'll learn what you need to know to comfortably interact with the different applications of cryptography that we use every day. Some of the major topics that we're going to cover include the fundamental building blocks of various cryptographic applications and how to use them, new ways of keeping data protected, even when it's being processed on hardware that's out of our control, managing cryptographic keys, and the threat that quantum computing poses and how to mitigate it. By the end of this course, you'll understand many applications of cryptography and how they work. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn fundamental cryptography concepts with the Getting Started with Cryptography course here at Pluralsight
