- Familiarize yourself with this cryptography article over at wikipedia.
- Then go over to grc.com/securitynow.htm and listen to episodes 30-37. Yes I know Steve Gibson's voice can be annoying at times, but hey, he's a guru and you might as well listen to what he has to say.
- Then you are going to be ready for the advanced course over at University of Washington.
- Now you are ready to explore, research more about the application you are curious about, such as Skype etc.
Soon enough I'll have my own article too on how this stuff works, if I can get around to write it of course. So come back in the summer... to take a crash course on Crypto if you are more interested.
