Websites that help you to learn Cryptography and Security Issues

Cryptography is both the practice and study of the techniques used to communicate and/or store information or data privately and securely, without being intercepted by third parties. This can include processes such as encryptionhashing, and steganography. Until the modern era, cryptography almost exclusively referred to encryption, but now cryptography is a broad field with applications in many critical areas of our lives.

8. ScienceDaily

Here you will find a number of tips and tricks and resources on cryptography.


It stands for Crypto IP Encapsulation and is an easy but useful method for computer security.


Learn Cryptography is dedicated to helping people understand how and why the cryptographic systems they use everyday without realizing (such as banking transactions, logging in to Facebook, etc) are secure and protected from malicious hackers and identity thieves.

It is a reference to give someone who is interested in network security, but does not know where to start, some guidance of how to begin learning about the vast field of network security and where to look for information. The important thing to keep in mind is stay focused and learn little by little.
