Cryptography is easy to implement badly, and this can give us a false sense of security

Two Full pages

We leave ourselves open to failure if we do not pay close enough attention to designing our security mechanisms while we implement cryptographic controls in our applications. Cryptography is easy to implement badly, and this can give us a false sense of security. 

Examine some of the different types of cryptographic attacks such as those on social media platforms. Discuss the various ways in which we might secure our applications and provide examples.
