I've finally got around to finishing a major update of my Godzilla crypto and
security tutorial to cover newer material like WEP, WPA, and WPA2.  It's

comprises 784 slides in 10 parts.

The tutorial covers security threats and requirements, services and
mechanisms, and sercurity data format templates, historical ciphers, cipher
machines, stream ciphers, RC4, block ciphers, DES, breaking DES, brute-force
attacks, other block ciphers (AES, Blowfish, CAST-128, GOST, IDEA, RC2,
Skipjack, triple DES), block cipher encryption modes (ECB, CBC, CFB,
encrypt+MAC modes), public-key encryption (RSA, DH, Elgamal, DSA), using PKCs,
elliptic curve algorithms, hash and MAC algorithms (MD2, MD4, MD5, SHA-1,
SHA-2, RIPEMD-160, the HMAC's), pseudorandom functions, key management, key
distribution, the certification process, X.500 and X.500 naming, certification
heirarchies, X.500 directories and LDAP, the PGP web of trust, certificate
revocation, X.509 certificate structure and extensions, certificate profiles,
setting up and running a CA, CA policies, RA's, timestamping, PGP
certificates, SPKI, why do we need digital signature legislation, what is a
signature, paper vs.electronic signatures, non- repudiation, trust, and
liability, existing approaches, examples of existing legislation of various
types including advantages and drawbacks, the Digital Signature Law litmus
test, user authentication, Unix password encryption, LANMAN and NT domain
