Introduction to Cryptography

Cryptography is the practice of techniques used to protect the secure transmission of information. This course is an excellent starting point to understand what is cryptography, learn how cryptography is used, and understand hash, symmetric, and asymmetric cryptographic algorithms. You will learn the inner workings of security encryption and cryptographic systems and how to correctly use them in real-world applications through hands-on experience via live virtual machine labs, lab simulations, and case projects.
