After a summer of high profile attacks on encryption including password, credit card and private user information exposure, new attacks on SSL and just plain lack of encryption all together on important data, it seems like something as critical as implementing encryption through an organization is a difficult and expensive task requiring skilled experts. But with terabytes of information on basics of encryption over the Internet, the knowledge should not be beyond the reach of the average user.
This fall, we at MyAppSecurity have released a new quiz on encryption to test and educate yourself on the very basics of encryption. Armed with this knowledge, one can explore freely available resources online to further bolster their knowledge on the field of cryptography. You can test your knowledge of encryption at: http://www.myappsecurity.com/application-security/encryption-quiz/
We want you to be among the first people to enjoy this quiz. We invite you to share these links and we welcome your comments and suggestions.
