This course is an overview of modern cryptography algorithms and will describe asymmetric algorithms such as DES, 3DES, AES, and Blowfish as well as asymmetric algorithms such as RSA, Diffie-Hellman, and Elliptic Curve.
Chuck Easttom is the author of 11 computer science books including 2 computer security textbooks used at universities around the globe and translated into several languages. He also holds a host of IT certifications including MCP, MCSA, MCSE, MCAD, MCTS (Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, SQL Server 2008, and Visual Studio 2010), MCITP (Windows 7 and SQL Server 2008), MCDBA, MCT, A+, Network+, Linux+,iNet+, Server+, CEH, CHFI, ECSA, CEI, and CISSP. He currently has 7 provisional patents, all related to computer science and 4 related to computer security. One of those patents regards a new method of steganography, another regards a new approach to detecting spyware, and yet another involves the invention of a new, more stable file system.
He is also the inventor of a method for quantifying network security that is being taught at several universities, and most recently has developed a new approach to creating ghost drives. He has taught various security related courses for several years and has over 10 years of teaching experience. He is also a frequent consultant on various computer related court cases including both criminal and patent cases. While Mr. Easttom has a broad range of security expertise, his passion has always been cryptography
