Cryptography in .NET

This course will explore cryptographic operations in .NET Core that help developers code systems that protect confidentiality, integrity, non-repudiation and authenticity.

Course description

Did you know that the earliest known use of cryptography is found in non-standard hieroglyphs from an Old Kingdom Egyptian tomb from 1900 BC? Today, cryptography is still indispensable for protecting information from unauthorized access. In this course, you will discover many implementations of cryptography while learning the fundamental applicability of encryption and hashing.
