This course introduces students to the applied principles of cryptography and looks at its practical applications and methods, many of which are fundamental to secure data in the cloud. Students are expected to analyse fundamental symmetric, asymmetric and hashing encryption methods, and investigate examples of these in practice. Students are expected to demonstrate the use of cryptography and cryptanalysis tools, methods and their applications. Students are also expected to appraise the inner workings of cryptographic protocols and principles, including transport layer security (TLS) and blockchain, and evaluate how they can be used by organisations to enhance security when considering a move to a cloud environment.

On successful completion of this course students will be able to analyse functions of stream ciphers and block ciphers, produce code implementing ciphers, analyse methods such as KEM, DEM and PKE’s to secure data in a cloud environment. Students will design a security case and implement it demonstrating the use of cryptographic and cryptoanalysis tools for improving security in a virtual private network, for an organisation considering a move to the cloud. As a result, they will develop skills such as critical thinking, analysis, and interpretation, which are crucial
for gaining employment and developing academic competence.

By the end of this course a student will be able to:

  1. Analyse encryption ciphers and algorithms as methods to secure data in a cloud environment.
  2. Discuss security risks and issues related to public key encryption in practice.
  3. Demonstrate the use of cryptographic and cryptoanalysis tools for improving security in a virtual private network.
  4. Evaluate advanced encryption protocols and their application for an organisation considering a move to the cloud.

There are no formal prerequisites or qualifications required to enroll. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • As the course is conducted entirely in English, we recommend that learners have a good grasp of the English language, both written and spoken, to gain maximum benefit.
  • Since this is an online course, you’ll need a computer, tablet, or smartphone with internet access. Familiarity with basic computer skills would be advantageous.
  • While you can learn at your own pace, dedicating consistent time to the course will help you understand and retain the material better.

          Registration process:

          • Based on course settings, students might be requested to fill in an application (online) and provide us with correct information about themselves before being able to proceed with the course.
          • We will contact you by email if we need more details after submitting your application.
          • After approval, you can proceed with payment and start the course.

          Materials are organized under different lessons. The lessons consist of self-study contents including reading-texts, practical activity, assignment and quizzes in which students can engage and learn.

          The course has supervisors and instructors; they are available online to support students by answering their questions or explain different topics to them. This will be managed under discussion section, forums, direct contact or by online meetings.

          When student successfully completes all lessons, quizzes and pass assignment, he/she will be offered a certificate.

          The course is available as an individual or under Pearson Qualifications (HNC/HND) in Computing. The price will be updated based on the selected option. The individual course fee is higher because awarding body has additional fees for individual enrollment. At the same time, a discount will be automatically added when you order HNC/HND in Computing or if you’re already enrolled under these qualifications.

          Courses awarded under Next Gates have no discount, and the fee is already reduced.

          * Note that prices don’t include VAT. Additional fee might be applied at checkout.
