... even a thoroughly audited and pen tested organization may have major vulnerabilities in their encryption.
Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
This three day course is an in depth examination of the field of cryptography. All modern security, at some level, depends on cryptography. This course explores the science of cryptography teaching students the history of cryptography, modern cryptographic methods, cryptography in the cloud, and how to use techniques like cryptanalysis to break cryptography. The course also covers closely related topics such as hashing and digital certificates.
“This course is just about cryptography, not security in general as opposed to other courses where most of the time spent is on general security concepts,” explained Mr. Easttom who is the author of 13 computer science books including two computer security textbooks used at universities around the globe.
Mr. Easttom also went on to explain, “Most penetration testers do not understand enough about cryptography to really test an organization’s encryption. That means that even a thoroughly audited and pen tested organization may have major vulnerabilities in their encryption.”
The Hacker Halted Academy will host the Secure Encryption and Countermeasures course as well as many other advanced hacking courses such as Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), Advanced Mobile Hacking & Forensics, Advanced Application Security, Advanced Metasploit Decoded and many more!
