Hands-on Cryptography with Python FULL

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Learn essential concepts of cryptography as it is used on the modern Internet, including hashing, symmetric encryption, and asymmetric encryption. Then perform hands-on projects calculating hashes and encrypting secrets with RSA and AES, and compete to solve challenges including cracking Windows and Linux password hashes, short and poorly-chosen RSA public keys, and poorly-chosen AES keys.  We will also cover Blockchains, the technology behind Bitcoin.

No previous programming experience required. Students need to bring a computer that can run Python; any version of Mac, Windows, or Linux will be fine. I will have a few loaner computers for students who don't have a usable computer.

All materials, projects, and challenges are freely available at https://samsclass.info/124/Defcon-BSidesLV-2016-crypto.shtml
