Recent attacks against individuals and companies online have utilised known vulnerabilities in certificate management in order to spoof websites or gain trust to install malicious software without the user's knowledge. This 3 day workshop provides an opportunity for industry, research and academia communities, and government sectors, to have a broad overview of the use of encryption technology in Public Key Infrastructure and Transport Layer Security. This includes an analysis of the most prolific attacks against crypto systems.
This instructor-led event will combine lectures on the basics of encryption, the Encrypting File System currently used by Windows 7 and Windows 8, the creation of a PKI using a variety of software and looking at tools which can exploit flaws in the implementation of a PKI. The lectures will be complemented with extensive exercises using the software discussed.
The course is intended for anyone who wishes to develop an understanding of the concepts behind public key infrastructure, transport layer security and their application in real life.
