An Introduction to Cryptography

Antal Goldschmidt, Coventry University

Investigate the security of encrypted data

Is it possible to prove the security of encrypted data? Will every algorithm fail given sufficient time or computing power?

On this course you will get an introduction to cryptography and cryptanalysis. From ancient examples of secret messages and the spies that cracked them to modern cryptographic applications, you will have the opportunity to explore the foundations of data security.

During the course you will also get an opportunity to try encrypting data yourself by completing a cryptography and cryptanalysis challenge.

The Institute of Coding supported the development of this course in response to consultation with industry representatives from the healthcare, manufacturing and automotive sectors.

This course is for people who want to understand more about the way cryptography keeps our communications safe, either out of curiosity or to prepare for advanced study of the topic.
