This course is for beginners and IT pros looking to get certified and land an entry level Cyber Security position paying upwards of six figures! There are currently over a million Cyber Security job openings global and demand is greatly outpacing supply which means more opportunity, job security and higher pay for you!

The Security+ exam covers six domains and this course focuses on the sixth domain which is 'Cryptography'.

  • You will learn about public and private key encryption
  • Message Authentication Codes
  • Public Key Infrastructure
  • Public Key Infrastructure Management
  • Basic Cryptography
  • Advanced Cryptography

There are two types of encryption we will discuss in detail are symmetric and asymmetric.

Next, you will cover some of the finer points of the subject such as Cipher types and specific Cipher attacks. You will learn how Message Authentication Codes are used and their role in securing network communications. This includes hashing algorithms used and resisting MAC attacks. 

We will cover specific cryptographic algorithms such as those used in elliptic curve cryptography and quantum crypto. Hashes are great for providing fingerprints of blocks of data such as passwords but given enough time and resources they can be cracked. You will learn how to enhance hashes, with just a pinch of salt. 

In the lesson on Public Key Cryptography and Public Key Infrastructure you will learn about:

  • Public/Private Keys
  • Message Digests
  • Digital Signatures
  • Chains of trust and Certificate Authorities

In this section on PKI Management, we will cover the various management tasks involved with creating and managing a PKI infrastructure and how to generate signed certificates using OpenSSL. 

What are the requirements?

  • Internet connection.

What am I going to get from this course?
