Cryptography is often shrouded like it is a black art. While you should stay away from implementing your own crypto, there’s plenty of components available in the Java ecosystem that can help you. But, what are they, and what to all those terms mean?
In this session, we will unpack the jargon and show you different types of cryptography. We will visit some of the common pitfalls, talk about relative performance, and take a peek at new developments such as attribute based encryption.
To top it all off, we go into the core Java APIs that available to help you.
You will leave this session with a newfound appreciation of the tools available, and have a better understanding of which parts are too hot too handle.
