What is the Encryption course?

This course is an introduction to encryption, and is intended to serve both as an overview and as a level set and foundation. Encryption is a key element in protecting us and our information as we go about our daily lives and as we interact with others online. It ensures our information and our communications remain confidential, protected, and available only to those for whom we intend.

What are the course objectives?
  • Describe encryption concepts at a high level, and the benefits encryption offers to us individually and as a society
  • Find out why it is important, and the ways in which we rely upon strong encryption in our daily lives
  • Understand how and why efforts to weaken encryption pose a serious threat
  • Learn about various “backdoor access” proposals and why they are problematic
  • Learn about the Internet Society’s goals and activities related to supporting strong encryption and defending against threats to it
  • Discover what actions you can take to advocate for strong encryption in your community and beyond
