We noticed in our interactions with developers that their knowledge of cryptography is limited, which leads to possible security issues. This video is an introduction to fundamentals of cryptography for developers, touching on three topics:
- Encryption – symmetric and asymmetric, vulnerabilities and challenges
- Hashing – what it’s used for, possible attacks, salt and pepper
- Digital signature
