I just did Crytography course.
lol I wasted my time it was 1 of 6 courses to get a cert and I've been in the courses for 2 years but ok.

At the NSA, we don't care if you use the strongest crypto ever created, because we can watch you as you type and edit your message before it is even sent
We can also read it at the other end when it is decrypted. It doesn't matter whether you use a Mac or Windows
All your base are belong to us!
No because I know if you get on the radar of one of these 3 letter agencies, there is nothing you can do to prevent them from doing what they want other than being a billionaire with a team of lawyers.Well, there's your problem right there
You don't care who's security is violated as long as you can make a few bucks
