The participants will learn the foundations of modern symmetric and key cryptography including the details of algorithms such as Feistel Networks, DES, and AES. Other topics introduced:
- Overview of other algorithms such as Blowfish, Twofish, and Skipjack
- Hashing algorithms including MD5, MD6, SHA, Gost, RIPMD 256 and others.
- Asymmetric cryptography including thorough descriptions of RSA, Elgamal, Elliptic Curve, and DSA.
- Significant concepts such as diffusion, confusion, and Kerkchoff’s principle.
- Student will learn types of Encryption Standards and their differences.
- Student will learn how to select the best standard for your organization.
- Student will learn how to enhance your pen-testing knowledge in encryption.
- Student will learn the correct and incorrect deployment of encryption technologies.
- Student will learn the common mistakes made in implementing encryption technologies.
- Student will learn the best practices when implementing encryption technologies.
Who Should Attend
Anyone involved in selecting, implementing VPN’s or digital certificates should attend this course first. Without understanding the cryptography at some depth, people are limited to following marketing hype. Understanding the actual cryptography allows you to know which one to select. A person successfully completing this course will be able to select the encryption standard that is most beneficial to their organization and understand how to effectively deploy that technology. This course is excellent for ethical hackers and penetration testing professionals as most penetration testing courses skip cryptanalysis completely. Many penetration testing professionals testing usually don’t attempt to crack cryptography. A basic knowledge of cryptanalysis is very beneficial to any penetration testing.
