Cryptographic communications rely on entropy.
This eBook will help you understand the basic concepts of entropy and conditioning functions so that you can build a successful foundation for utilizing entropy for cryptographic and cybersecurity uses.
Entropy might mean disorder, but it can be a useful cryptographic tool!
This guide will walk you through definitions, anecdotes, and parallel visualizations to explain in plain terms what entropy is and how it can be used in cryptography.
What you’ll learn by reading this eBook:
- Important terms from SP 800-90B.
- Purpose of a conditioning function.
- Why the use of a conditioning function is an important consideration.
- Visualize how conditioning functions work in cryptographic systems.
