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.


Hashing and digital signatures

Video - 00:11:00

Hash functions provide a way to map a long string to a shorter fixed-length output string known as hash-value or digest. They were primarily used to compress large sets of data and build hash tables in data structures. Hashes and digital signatures are a vital part of cybersecurity. In this course, we'll see the process of how the hashes are generated and the importance of digital signatures.
Asymmetric encryption

The second module will show how asymmetric cryptography works and the math behind the RSA cryptosystem.
Symmetric encryption and ciphers

Video - 00:37:00

In the first module of the cryptography course, we will learn the fundamentals of cryptography, the early uses of cryptography in ancient times and the evolution to today's algorithms.
