I wonder if any of you, either in your pursuit of the CISSP or other (ISC)2 credentials, compiled a list of resources to assist those of us who are following you in the understanding or memorization of cybersecurity mathematics and other concepts of cybersecurity numbers.
I can think of numbers in BIA, and other risk algorithms (ALE, SLE, Total Risk, etc.) and in internetwork addressing schemes (bytes, packets, octets and so forth), also in cryptography (modular math, understanding ECC) and in 3DES, SHA-1, SHA-2, Keccak, etc.) I suppose there are numbers for budgeting, cost/benefit analyses, etc.
It would be great not to have reinvent any wheels and TO work from a readily available source (any wikis on this out there?)
That's my concern right now; knowing how to have the numbers on hand when the inevitable number-crunching questions arise.
Thanks all, and best regards as always.
What I will say if you are studying math for Crypto Implementation and you are not a cryptologist, a cryptography programmer or Whitfield Diffie then you are probably doing it wrong. 😉
If however, you are studying to pick it up or for fun or to break into it then this is awesome:
If you are a cryptologist or Whitfield Diffie the secret's hidden within your luxurious beard* encompass this and more.
*It can be a metaphorical beard as well, not all cryptology practitioners have them.
