Week 5: Cryptography
Cory explains the focus for this week: cryptography.
Cryptography is a specialised area of mathematics concerned with protecting information so that it can be transmitted and received securely even when there is a risk that a hostile third party might intercept or modify the data. You will recognise it as it’s been mentioned before as a technique that can help with protecting information.
We are now going to look at this important aspect of cyber security in a little more detail.
