About this course

The target audience are those unfamiliar with how cryptography works or those very rusty and in need of a refresher. Both symmetric and asymmetric cryptography will be covered and examples will be shown on how each are used in real-world examples. It will be shown how identity is created and used for authentication, integrity, and confidentiality.  Due to time limitations, math proofs of these functions are unable to be presented.  Only practical use is covered.
