This course is an introduction to the field of cryptography and covers the exam objectives laid out in EC-Council Certified Encryption Specialist (ECES). Topics include the history and application of cryptography and symmetric cryptography and hashes.

[SOUND] Welcome to your EC-Council Certified Encryption Specialist series. Whether you're looking to take the exam or just brush up on your skill set, this is the perfect place for you. With us, we have Mr. Adam Gordon in studios to cover this topic. Thank you for joining us today, Adam. >> Thank you. Always a pleasure to be here at ITPRO.TV and spend time with you and with our wonderful co-hosts, like Cherokee. And talking about encryption in particular is so exciting. It's so relevant to what we do today. We're gonna be taking you on a journey, helping you to better understand things, like what is the difference between symmetric and asymmetric cryptography? What are digital signatures and hashes? How do they work? Why are they important? We'll throw a little history and background into the mix there on cryptography in general. Look backwards, see what people years, hundreds, thousands of years ago may have done, what we do in the modern day. How we could trace our reference points for cryptography back to some of the earliest opportunities for people to engage in commerce and exchange information. How they did that successfully, and that would bring that to the modern day and look at some of the most recent advents in cryptography and what we do. Or to take a look at how we apply cryptography to the modern world, what kinds of things do we do to secure and provide for secure communications, things like VPNs and how we use them. We're gonna take a look at all the practical, if you will, applications of cryptography, wireless, secure transmissions, and all those kinds of technologies. We're also gonna take a look at cryptanalysis, the way in which we actually can break the confidentiality and integrity protections that cryptography affords us the ability to be able to use to securely transmit and work with our data on a daily basis. We're gonna be doing all of that as soon as you come on back and join us. So we look forward to spending that time with you, and hopefully, we'll see you as you see us going through all those episodes here, talking about the EC-Council Certified Encryption Specialist. Please come back and join us, and we'll be happy to spend time with you doing that. >> Thank you. [SOUND]
