EC-COUNCIL CERTIFIED ENCRYPTION SPECIALIST (ECES)

Cyber Security Training with ECES Certification

EC-Council Certified Encryption Specialist (ECES)

If you think that there is only one type of encryption – think again! Secure organizations employ multiple levels of encryption – database encryption, VoIP encryption, portable storage encryption, mobile devices encryption, Wi-Fi encryption, e-mail encryption, file encryption – server/desktop, network link encryption, web server encryption, tape backup encryption, and many more.

Some of the most recent attacks that have had serious consequences share one thing in common – they all had either little or no effective encryption. This resulted in thousands of users being affected and hundreds of millions in losses. It resulted in a serious decline of brand value and public embarrassment, and these were not technically naïve companies by any means. To name a few – SONY PS3, RSA, iPhone, and LinkedIn.

The ECES course introduces students to modern symmetric key cryptography including the details of algorithms such as Feistel Networks, DES, and AES as well as an overview of many other algorithms such as Blowfish, Twofish, Skipjack, and others. Other topic areas include the basics of information theory as it applies to cryptography; an introduction to hashing algorithms including MD5, MD6, SHA, Gost, RIPMD 256 and others; asymmetric cryptography including thorough descriptions of RSA, Elgamal, Elliptic Curve, and DSA; significant concepts such as diffusion, confusion, and Kerkcho’s principle.

ECES Course Prerequisites

  • Basic computer literacy
  • Basic PC operating system navigation skills
  • Basic internet usage skills
  • Basic IP addressing knowledge
  • No prior knowledge of cryptography is assumed, and no mathematical skills beyond basic algebra are required
