In the fourth edition of the Exploring Information Security (EIS) podcast, I talk to the smooth sounding Justin Troutman a cryptographer from North Carolina about what cryptography is.
Justin is a security and privacy research currently working on a project titled, "Mackerel: A Progressive School of Cryptographic Thought." You can find him on Twitter (@JustinTroutman) discussing ways in which crypto can be made easier for the masses. Be sure to check out his website for more information.
In the interview Justin talks about
- What cryptography is
- Why everyone should care about cryptography
- What some of it's applications are
- How someone would get started in cryptography and what are some of the skills needed
