Course Description

Encryption is defined as the conversion of something to code or symbols so that its contents cannot be understood if intercepted. Encryption refers to any process that's used to make sensitive data more secure and less likely to be intercepted by those unauthorized to view it. There are several modern types of encryption.

Encryption exists to protect data from unauthorized access by translating it into a format that is unreadable without a decryption or secret key. Encryption is used in electronic money schemes to protect conventional transaction data like account numbers and transaction amounts, digital signatures.Encryption is a process that encodes a message or file so that it can be only be read by certain people. Encryption uses an algorithm to scramble, or encrypt, data and then uses a key for the receiving party to unscramble, or decrypt, the information. The message contained in an encrypted message is referred to as plaintext. In its encrypted, unreadable form it is referred to as ciphertext.

Basic forms of encryption may be as simple as switching letters. As cryptography advanced, cryptographers added more steps, and decryption became more difficult.Calypso also provides a its own encryption and decryption techniques to encrypt and decrypt passwords.

There are several properties files used in Calypso which contains user and password details.These details once compromised will give unauthorized access to database and application. Hence as a best practice, Calypso recommend encrypting passwords and use in files.

In this course you will learn about the different encryption techniques provided by Calypso and how to configure them.You will also learn the steps and implement them in Calypso.
