Course Overview

EC-Council Certified Encryption Specialist, ECES certification and training helps information security professionals to gain far-reaching understanding of cryptography. The training provides understanding of the core concepts of futuristic key and symmetric cryptography along with a detailed understanding of algorithms including DES, AES and Feistel Networks. Candidates also learn about algorithms such as Twofish, Blowfish, and Skipjack, hashing algorithms such as SHA, MD5, MD6, RIPMD 256, Gost, etc. The program also covers the fundamentals of asymmetric cryptography that consists of ElGamal, RSA, DSA, and Elliptic Curve. Eminent concepts like confusion, diffusion, and Kerkchoff’s principle, setting up a VPN, encrypting a drive, implementing steganography and cryptographic algorithms including ciphers such as Caesar cipher, AES and RSA are also explained during this certification training.

Target Audiance

  • This course is excellent for ethical hackers and penetration testing professionals as most penetration testing courses skip cryptanalysis completely. Many penetration testing professionals testing usually don’t attempt to crack cryptography. A basic knowledge of cryptanalysis is very beneficial to any penetration testing.
