Year round learning for web and digital professionals

Web Directions Safe ’21 session spotlight–Introduction to cryptography on the frontend

Introduction to cryptography on the frontend

Cryptography forms the backbone of how we securely use information online, but most developers don’t have more than a surface level understanding of cryptography. What’s more, cryptography is so easy to mess up – even the experts get it wrong! In this talk, attendees will learn about the basic cryptographic algorithms, how to use cryptographic libraries correctly (and what to avoid), what common attacks you should be thinking about, and what emerging web cryptography technologies you should be paying attention to.
