Cryptography For Newcomers - The hitchhiker's guide to cipher in devs
More than ever, we need security in our webservices and our apps, just to be confident about our data and privacy.
As a developer, it's under your responsibility. Maybe you think it's too complicated for you. Maybe you think it's just a hobby for crypto-hackers. Probably you just suffer a lack of information about how cryptography works, and what kind of tools you can use.
So, dive in cryptographic world: ciphers, technics, tools, etc. We will take a look at which solution to use according to the context. Because Open Source matters in terms of privacy, we will see huge and tiny frameworks about security and ciphers.
We will also see what does cryptography in the bowser mean with the W3C's WebCrypto API, the frameworks build on it, and how to use them for a better security layer in our web and mobile apps.
m4dz is a strange animal. Through many lives, he always tried to teach to others what he learnt himself. Previously a web developer (nobody's perfect), concerned about privacy, a respect of private data, and cyber security. He's now Tech Evangelist at alwaysdata. He tries to inform about present and future of digital issues. His favorite book always remains "Alice in Wonderland".
