Synopsis

  • The objective of this tutorial is to introduce cryptographic concepts by explaining various hash functions, encryption algorithms and digital signatures and how to utilise cryptography to enhance security.

Target Audience

  • Engineers, Network Managers and Operators, and Security policy makers who are interested in network security and want to gain an understanding of how to utilise cryptography.

Pre-requisites

It is assumed that participants have a basic understanding of:

  • network operations, Internet technologies, OSI reference model and TCP/IP.
  • Basic Linux command line (CLI) skills.

We recommend the following Academy courses be completed before the start of the tutorial:

Tutorial topics

  • Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and Resource PKI
  • Transport Layer Security (TLS)
  • Virtual Private Networks (VPN) and IP security (IPSec)

Other requirements

  • Participants are advised to bring their own laptop computers with high-speed Wi-Fi (802.11a/g/n/ac) and administrative access to system. It is also recommended that laptops have Intel i5 or i7 processor, >=8GB of RAM and 30GB of free hard disk space.
  • Software: SSH Client, Telnet Client, VirtualBox/VMware
  • Confirm Secure SHell (SSH) is allowed from the office or home network to access the lab infrastructure? Test ssh connectivity, try to connect to route-views.oregon-ix.net. For example from the CLI type: ssh rviews@route-views.oregon-ix.net
