Title: Application of Cryptography for Enterprise Security
Instructor: Dr. Michael Goldner | EC-Council University Dean
Description: Cryptography is the practice and study of techniques for keeping secrets. While the practice of keeping information hidden, or secured, has been around throughout the history of mankind, Modern Cryptography has evolved into much more. Now we use various algorithms (a fancy word for mathematical formulas) to not only keep information secured (Confidentiality), but also to authenticate the message and the originator of that message (Authentication); to stop the sender of the message from denying they sent it (Non-Repudiation); and to make sure that the information has not accidentally or purposely altered or corrupted (Integrity). This basic workshop will explain the basic concepts discussed above, as well as the differences between Symmetric and Asymmetric encryption. We will discuss Steganograhy, Digital certificates, Public Key Infrastructure and Digital Signatures. Although the workshop is to enhance basic understanding of these concepts, anyone studying for one of the major certification examinations in information security, such as the recently launched EC-Council Certified Chief Information Security Officer (C|CISO) will need to have a good grasp of these important concepts.
