identify the basics of cryptography and how to encrypt and decrypt messages using Vigenere cipher algorithm
apply concepts like ASCII codes and type casting
learn how to do some mathematical operations on characters
By the end of this project, you will be able to create a basic application using Vigenere encryption-decryption technique to encrypt and decrypt messages. Throughout the project, you will be able to identify the basics of cryptography and how to encrypt and decrypt messages using a specific technique, you will be able to apply concepts like ASCII codes and type casting. Moreover, you will be able to do some mathematical operations on characters, and finally you will be ready to dive more into the cryptography world. This guided project is for beginner programmers or any programmer who would like to enter the cryptography world. This project will be the beginning for you to build applications to encrypt and decrypt messages coming from the user using a certain technique. This project will give you the basic knowledge of cryptography and push you into the security engineering field. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:
In task 1 we are going to define the general idea of encryption and decryption and we will preview a demo of the project
In task 2 we are going to learn the concept of ASCII codes and type casting.
In task 3 we are going to learn the concept of Vigenere cipher and apply this concept to encrypt a single character.
In task 4 we will learn how to encrypt a whole string using Vigenere cipher.
In task 5 task we are going to create a basic encryption decryption application using Vigenere cipher.

What will I get if I purchase a Guided Project?
By purchasing a Guided Project, you'll get everything you need to complete the Guided Project including access to a cloud desktop workspace through your web browser that contains the files and software you need to get started, plus step-by-step video instruction from a subject matter expert.
Are Guided Projects available on desktop and mobile?
Because your workspace contains a cloud desktop that is sized for a laptop or desktop computer, Guided Projects are not available on your mobile device.
Who are the instructors for Guided Projects?
Guided Project instructors are subject matter experts who have experience in the skill, tool or domain of their project and are passionate about sharing their knowledge to impact millions of learners around the world.
Can I download the work from my Guided Project after I complete it?
You can download and keep any of your created files from the Guided Project. To do so, you can use the “File Browser” feature while you are accessing your cloud desktop.
What is the refund policy?
Is financial aid available?
Financial aid is not available for Guided Projects.
Can I audit a Guided Project and watch the video portion for free?
Auditing is not available for Guided Projects.
How much experience do I need to do this Guided Project?
At the top of the page, you can press on the experience level for this Guided Project to view any knowledge prerequisites. For every level of Guided Project, your instructor will walk you through step-by-step.
Can I complete this Guided Project right through my web browser, instead of installing special software?
Yes, everything you need to complete your Guided Project will be available in a cloud desktop that is available in your browser.
What is the learning experience like with Guided Projects?
You'll learn by doing through completing tasks in a split-screen environment directly in your browser. On the left side of the screen, you'll complete the task in your workspace. On the right side of the screen, you'll watch an instructor walk you through the project, step-by-step.
