CompTIA CASP CAS-002: Cryptography and Enterprise Storage Concerns

Security candidates looking to certify their technical knowledge and skills required to conceptualize, engineer, integrate, and implement secure solutions across complex environments


Expected Duration
121 minutes

Cryptography has been used for thousands of years to secure messages and hide information from those who would seek to steal it. In this course, you’ll learn about cryptographic concepts and techniques along with examining the security implications associated with enterprise storage. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CAS-002) certification exam.


Cryptographic Techniques and Concepts

  • start the course
  • define key stretching and hashing
  • define pseudo number generation and perfect forward secrecy
  • define transport and data at rest encryption
  • define code signing and digital signatures
  • define entropy, diffusion, and confusion
  • define The CIA triad and non-repudiation
  • define chain of trust and root of trust

Advanced Cryptographic Concepts

  • define wild cards, OCSP, and CRL
  • define issuance, key escrow, and object support
  • define steganography
  • define cryptographic applications and proper/improper implementations

Implications of Cryptographic Methods

  • define implications of cryptographic methods and design
  • define strength vs. performance vs. feasibility to implement vs. interoperability
  • define DRM, watermarking, and GPG
  • define SSL, SSH, S/MIME

Enterprise Storage Security

  • define virtual and cloud storage
  • define data warehousing and archiving
  • define NAS, SAN, and vSAN
  • define iSCSI and FCoE
  • define NFS and CIFS

Secure Storage Management

  • define multipath and offsite or multisite replication
  • define snapshots and how they are used
  • define deduplication and dynamic disk pools
  • define LUN masking and HBA allocation
  • define disk, block, file, record and port encryption types

Practice: Cryptography and Enterprise Storage

  • Selecting appropriate cryptographic concepts and techniques and explaining security implications.
