Cryptography builds the fundamental security concepts of cryptographic algorithms, cryptographic protocols, and cryptanalysis, it has become the basis for other security-related courses in cybersecurtiy education. However, there are still a few major barriers for students at HBCU institutions to comprehend the core concepts of the cryptography, including decontextualized learning, complex math, and the lack of publicly available instructional materials. The overarching project goal is to enhance African-American undergraduates? learning experiences in cryptography at Bowie State University (BSU) by addressing these major learning barriers. The project aims at implementing a cloud-based cryptographic simulator with a contextualized learning approach to help students comprehend the fundamental concepts of cryptography, including protocols and cryptanalysis.
