Applied Cryptography Module

View information about the Applied Cryptography Module

The Applied Cryptography module aligns with Learning Outcomes in the NSA "Introduction to Cryptography" knowledge unit, which includes identifying the elements of a cryptographic system; describing the differences between symmetric and asymmetric algorithms; and describing which cryptographic protocols, tools, and techniques are appropriate for a given situation.

  • Aligns with Learning Outcomes in the Information Assurance and Security (IAS) knowledge unit of the ACM Computer Science Curricular Guidelines
  • Aligns with the Learning Objectives and Essential Knowledge Statements in the AP CSP framework, Big Idea 6: The Internet 

The Applied Cryptography module has been pilot-tested in the following courses: COSC 1301, Computers and Technology; COSC 1437, Programming Fundamentals II; CS 150, Computer Science I; and CST 101, Introduction to Information Systems.
