IT 463 CRYPTOGRAPHY

Modern cryptographic algorithms and techniques underpin many of the tools, programs, and devices used to provide security in today's organizations. In this course, students will get an in-depth look at the building blocks of cryptographic algorithms, utilize modern ciphers through practical exercises, discuss current issues around cryptography, and gain a deep understanding of how cryptography is used to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, availability, and non-repudiation of organizational information. Symmetric, asymmetric, and un-keyed algorithms will be explored, as well as practical attacks and defenses applicable to cryptographic keys.
