Learn about using cryptography for information security. This course covers how to apply symmetric standards, including DES and 3DES, and asymmetric standards, including RSA, PGP, and more. Learn how to manage security keys, implement encryption, and secure wireless networks.
- Hi, I'm Mike Chapel and I'd like to welcome you to our CompTIA Security+ Cryptography course. The CompTIA Security+ certification is one of the most popular entry level certifications for Information Security professionals. Earning the Security+ certification requires passing an exam covering six different domains of information security. This course covers one of those domains, cryptography. This is the last course in a six part series designed to help you prepare for the Security+ exam.
In this course we'll be focusing on protecting information with encryption, understanding the different types of encryption available, managing the secure distribution of encryption keys, creating digital signatures to enforce non repudiation, securing network communications with encryption, and adding encryption security to authentication protocols. The information you learn in this course will help you pass the Security+ exam and also provide a critical foundation for your career in Information Security.
All right, let's get rolling.
This course is part of a six-course series on the CompTIA Security+ exam, and is useful for IT professionals who wish to learn more about information security as well as students preparing to take the Security+ exam.
