COD 288 - Java Public Key Cryptography
Public key cryptography is a critical framework for secure communications and data transfer in Java applications. It operates on the principles of asymmetric cryptography, which involves producing a bound [pair of keys: one public and one private. The private key remains confidential, like a password, while the public key is made available to anyone, much like an email address. This dual-key system serves two purposes; the first is encryption and the second is for digital signatures. This course provides learners with the knowledge and skills to apply best practices for using Public Key Cryptography in Java.
On successful completion of this course, learners should have the knowledge and skills required to:
- Use Java Public Key Cryptography
- Secure Public Keys using Digital Signatures and CAs
- Limit the use of Self-Signed Certificates using Certificate Chains
- Store and manage keys securely using Keystores, signing Java Classes
