Teaching Basic Cryptography Concepts through the Creation of a Cryptographic Learning Tool
MetadataShow full item record
Cryptography is a common technique used to assure data confidentiality and integrity. With the development of a tool designed to provide basic information and capabilities of cryptography, we can reduce the time that it takes for students and IT security professionals to understand and get familiarized with the different types of ciphers that are available, such as mono-alphabetic, polyalphabetic, and polygraph ciphers. This paper will provide an inside view of the functionalities offered and information related to the ciphers used within the tool, helping to master encryption/decryption concepts faster and more effectively. Key Terms - Ciphers, Cryptanalysis, Decryption, Encryption.
