Each course includes a corresponding learner's project. The projects are designed to help learners objectively evaluate different cryptographic methods as they may be applied to cybersecurity. The project assignments are graded assessments. Learners must earn 100% on the projects to successfully complete this specialization.
Специализация Introduction to Applied Cryptography
Introduction to Applied Cryptography. Cryptographic methods underpinning cybersecurity.
Об этой специализации
Cryptography is an essential component of cybersecurity. The need to protect sensitive information and ensure the integrity of industrial control processes has placed a premium on cybersecurity skills in today’s information technology market. Demand for cybersecurity jobs is expected to rise 6 million globally by 2019, with a projected shortfall of 1.5 million, according to Symantec, the world’s largest security software vendor. According to Forbes, the cybersecurity market is expected to grow from $75 billion in 2015 to $170 billion by 2020. In this specialization, students will learn basic security issues in computer communications, classical cryptographic algorithms, symmetric-key cryptography, public-key cryptography, authentication, and digital signatures. These topics should prove useful to those who are new to cybersecurity, and those with some experience.

Symmetric CryptographyCurrent session: May 21
- 2-5 hours/week
О курсеWelcome to Symmetric Cryptography! Symmetric cryptography relies on shared secret key to ensure message confidentiality, so that the unauthorized attackers cannot retrieve the message. The course describes substitution and transposition techniques, whic
Asymmetric Cryptography and Key ManagementCurrent session: May 21
- 2-5 hours/week
О курсеWelcome to Asymmetric Cryptography and Key Management! In asymmetric cryptography or public-key cryptography, the sender and the receiver use a pair of public-private keys, as opposed to the same symmetric key, and therefore their cryptographic operatio
