Cryptography with Python [Video]

More Information
Learn
  • How to protect data with encryption and hashing
  • Learn and compare various encryption methods, and attack them
  • Make hashes, crack them, and understand why they are so different
  • Learn how to use three NIST-recommended systems: AES, SHA, and RSA
  • Understand common errors in encryption and how to exploit them
About

Cryptography is essential to protect sensitive information, but it is often performed inadequately or incorrectly. Learn how to encrypt data, evaluate and compare encryption methods, and how to attack them. This video course starts by showing you how to encrypt and evaluate your data. You are also walked through various data encryption methods—such as obfuscation, hashing, and strong encryption—and how you can attack them. You will then learn how to make hashes and crack them, and understand why they are so different. You will also learn how to use three NIST-recommended systems: AES, SHA, and RSA. Towards the end of the course, you will master common errors in encryption and how to exploit them.

Style and Approach

The goal of this course is to show viewers how to encrypt data, evaluate and compare encryption methods, and attack them.

Features
  • Learn the most important cryptographic methods used today
  • Compare cryptographic modes and understand their limitations
  • Perform attacks on cryptographic systems
