Cryptology: It’s a Scalpel, not a Hammer - Mikhail Sudakov BSides Columbus Ohio 2018 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Cryptology: It’s a Scalpel, not a Hammer
Mikhail Sudakov
BSides Columbus Ohio 2018

In this not-too-technical presentation (not much math!), attendees will get a bird’s eye view of why crypto should be left to mathematicians and professionals and not approached lightly. Unfortunately, cryptology blunders are all too common today. Attendees will gain insight into why crypto is not something one can look up and hope to understand overnight. History has shown that implementing weak crypto, or rolling your own crypto, is often fraught with disaster. The slightest mistake often leads to complete scheme, not to mention data, compromise.

Mikhail is Cyber Security Architect and Analyst for LEO Cyber Security. He taught cryptology at St. Bonaventure University in NY, USA and had previously served the university as a programmer and information security specialist. Not being afraid to try his hand at offense, he holds an OSCP certification from Offensive Security. Mikhail is a cybersecurity professional with an enormous passion for mathematics and cryptology.
