From ciphers to cybersecurity, encryption is all around us. We rely on digital security while we bank, shop, and communicate. At the core of that security lies encryption. As developers, we use some form of encryption in our work everyday. Maybe we are storing or sending data online, implementing authentication protocols, or protecting our customers’ payment information.
This talk will cover the basics of a topic extensive enough to spend years studying. What is encryption? How does it work? Why is it important? You can expect to come away with a solid understanding of the foundational concepts in encryption. We will also take a little bit of time to peek into the future of encryption, where things are getting exciting!
