Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Justin Boyer, and welcome to my course, Practical Cryptography in Node.js. I'm the principal consultant at Green Machine Security. As development teams are expected more and more to understand how to write secure code and do it properly, Node developers need to understand how to keep their application's data safe. Data is the lifeblood of a business, so protecting if from malicious attackers is of paramount importance. In this course, we are going to learn what practical tools Node.js has to help developers properly secure their data. Some of the major topics that we will cover include how to protect passwords, how to protect the data in your database, or files in your servers, how to protect sensitive data while it's being transported between computers, and how to add two- factor authentication to your Node.js application. By the end of this course, you'll know how to keep your Node application's data safe from prying eyes. You'll also understand how to add extra authentication methods to keep your users safe. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with building Node.js applications. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn simple strategies to protect your data with the Practical Cryptography in Node.js course at Pluralsight.
