Course Description


EC-Council Certified Encryption Specialist Training (ECES)

EC-Council's Certified Encryption Specialist (ECES) program, offered at Ferro Technics, EC-Council accredited certified encryption specialist training center, introduces professionals and students to the intricate field of cryptography. Covering a broad spectrum of topics, the ECES program delves into modern symmetric key cryptography, including Feistel Networks, Data Encryption Standard (DES), and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithms. Participants also explore additional algorithms like Blowfish, Twofish, Skipjack, CAST, and TEA.

Comprehensive Curriculum

The curriculum includes information theory basics applied to cryptography, hashing algorithms (MD5, MD6, SHA, GOST, RIPMD 256), and asymmetric cryptography, with in-depth discussions on RSA, Elgamal, Elliptic Curve, and Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA). Students gain insights into crucial cryptographic principles like diffusion, confusion, and Kerckhoff's principle.

Practical Application

Our program emphasizes practical application, allowing students to work with cryptographic algorithms ranging from classical ciphers like the Caesar cipher to contemporary methods such as AES and RSA. Beyond theory, students gain hands-on experience setting up VPNs, encrypting drives, and exploring steganography. The ECES course also covers practical cryptanalysis and quantum computing knowledge, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of both traditional and cutting-edge cryptographic concepts.

Completing the ECES program at Ferro Technics empowers individuals to make informed decisions about selecting suitable encryption standards for their organizations. Graduates will not only understand the theoretical aspects of cryptography but also possess practical skills for effective technology deployment. This includes implementing encryption techniques, securing data with VPNs, and navigating emerging technologies like quantum computing, making them valuable assets in the cybersecurity field.

About the Exam

To maintain the high integrity of our certification exams, the EC-Council offers exams in multiple forms (i.e., different question banks). Each form undergoes thorough beta testing with a sample group under the guidance of subject matter experts. This process ensures that our exams maintain academic rigor and real-world applicability. We also determine the difficulty rating for each question, which contributes to an overall “cut score” for each exam form. To ensure equal assessment standards, cut scores are set on a per-exam form basis and can range from 60% to 78%, depending on the specific exam form.
