Cryptography: Introduction

Clasification: PUB (R2)
Date: 14/08/2018

This has always been on the to-do list but I’ve never got around to writing it. Let’s dive in and give you a taste of what is about to come.

If you haven’t already guessed it from the title this new series is about cryptography and each new post will dive into the details of one implementation from the world of cryptography.

These posts are for everyone and I don’t expect you to be a mathematician or cryptographer to understand the concepts but I do expect you to have at least a minimum of a GCSE C grade in mathematics. Remember, the better your mathematical knowledge is the easier it will be to understand the concepts, and this is especially true when diving into advanced level concepts.

The first post will be about the basics that you MUST know before tackling the others and don’t worry if you don’t get it the first time around, keep trying and once you’ve grasped the basics in the subject then move on. If you’re experienced in cryptography already then you can safely move on to the next post but I still recommend you look through the basics post anyway in case you’ve forgotten a few things.

After this one, the posts will dive into the details of multiple concepts and gradually move up through the ability scale until we get to the more advanced level concepts. Once finished, you should have knowledge of multiple concepts which might have been gibberish.

These posts will be released every fortnightly from September. Feedback is recommended thought Twitter or by email at BURTON AT TYPEWRITTEN DOT NET.
