This is a self-paced course that provides a continuation of information security and cybersecurity topics. Among the topics covered are Introduction to Cryptography, Authentication, Access Control, and Containerization. Students learn about both symmetric and asymmetric encryption and their uses. We also take a look at one-way hashing and how it differs from encryption. We drill into ways that encryption is used in PKI and Digital Certificates. Next, we tackle authentication. Authentication is relevant to multiple fields. In art, antiques, and anthropology, a common problem verifies that a given artifact was produced by a particular person or a specific place or period of history. In computer science, verifying a user's identity is often required to allow access to confidential data or systems. Next, we move on to different access control mechanisms. We then drill into the implementation details of access control in several other operating systems. We follow up with a deep dive into compatibility based access control mechanisms. Finally, we look at access control in virtual machines (VM), virtualization, and containerization. We look into how the operating system achieves access control, and whether these methods are sufficient.

¿Quién puede hacer este curso?

Lamentablemente, las personas de uno o más de los siguientes países o regiones no podrán registrarse para este curso: Irán, Cuba y la región de Crimea en Ucrania. Si bien edX consiguió licencias de la Oficina de Control de Activos Extranjeros de los EE. UU. (U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control, OFAC) para ofrecer nuestros cursos a personas en estos países y regiones, las licencias que hemos recibido no son lo suficientemente amplias como para permitirnos dictar este curso en todas las ubicaciones. edX lamenta profundamente que las sanciones estadounidenses impidan que ofrezcamos todos nuestros cursos a cualquier persona, sin importar dónde viva.
