CNT 4406 Network Security and Cryptography

This course addresses the use of various cryptographic techniques for securing data from unauthorized access. The algorithms used for symmetric ciphers, asymmetric ciphers, and cryptographic data integrity are discussed. The students learn the practical use of algorithms for the encryption of data including a public key infrastructure for issuing certificates; transport level security implementation for securing both web and remote access; and virtual private networks implementation for securing data in transit across unsecured networks.
