Educate

Join the NCMF-CCEI in the virtual classroom!


The National Cryptologic Museum Foundation (NCMF) has established a presence within the Nepris online education community.

Through a virtual classroom platform, the NCMF offers educational courses and cybersecurity chats designed to promote cybersecurity education and prepare job seekers for job opportunities in the cybersecurity field. Students and teachers can request a chat featuring a particular topic, while the NCMF partners with experts and organizations to help meet these requests. VISIT THE NCMF-CCEI-NEPRIS SITE.


Interested in hosting an online Cybersecurity Chat for K-12 students? We are always looking for cybersecurity professionals and experts who are wiling to share their knowledge and expertise with students in a virtual setting. Please visit the "SHARE YOUR CYBER EXPERTISE" page to learn more and sign up for this rewarding opportunity!


UPCOMING CHATS

The following Cybersecurity Chats (#CyberChats) are part of the NCMF's CCEI Cybersecurity Series, and typically focus on particular topics related to the High School Cybersecurity Curriculum Guidelines' "Big Ideas." Links to recordings of prior chats, including those that were part of National Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week are located further down on this page.


  • Join our #CyberChat conversation with Dr. Whitfield Diffie to learn how the DES was established. Click the Date/Title to register on Nepris to attend the live session. A recording will become available at a later date. Learn more about our guest speaker below.

    Details: It’s nearly impossible to do business of any kind without your personal data ending up in an organization’s networked computer system. Think about your exercise logs saved on your fitness watch or your banking information sent through your online account. Encryption can help protect data you send, receive, and store using your phone, tablet, or laptop.

    An early tool used to protect our data was via the Data Encryption Standard. The U.S. government established DES as the standard in 1977, and it remained our standard until advances in technology made DES obsolete. Encryption remains a tool to protect our data; however, Advanced Encryption Standard or AES is now the standard.

    Dr. Diffie serves on the NCMF Board of Directors and is a 2020 NSA/CSS Cryptologic Hall of Honor inductee. His innovative work in computer and internet security has enhanced the security of all users – government and civilian alike. His research at university facilities and private laboratories led the way in computer security theory and in practical applications. To learn more about his career and accomplishments, please visit his bio page on the ACM's A.M Turing Award website and view a video on YouTube about Dr. Diffie and Martin E. Hellman - A.M Turing Award Winners.
