The intent of the Advanced Cryptography Knowledge Unit is to provide students with knowledge of cryptographic algorithms, protocols, and their uses in the protection of information in various states.
- Describe how various cryptographic algorithms and protocols work.
- Evaluate security mechanisms based on cryptography.
- Describe the application of cryptography in SSL, virtual private networks, secure storage, and other security applications.
- Take a mode or protocol diagram and identify how an error propagates through the cryptosystem.
Below are the Knowledge, Skills, Abilities and Tasks (KSA-T) identified as being required to perform this work role.
