So i was studying cryptography & stenography as hobby . I saw that there are not many resources that teaches crypt & steg from basics to advance level . I know there are CTF's but most of the time CTF's are not for beginners .
What it does
CryptSteg takes teaches the users about crypt & steg from basics to advance level . An level at which a user can demonstrate his skills for practical use OR just solve CTF's ;)
How I built it
I used HTML5, CSS3 , JS , bootstrap , jquery , AJAX , PHP & mysql to built the site .
all the back-end is done in native PHP ( no framework ) and mysql . The front-end is built using jquery and bootstrap .
Challenges I ran into
The first and foremost challenge was to build everything from scratch as i had no experience with PHP frameworks . all code had to be written from scratch while maintaing the security of users and the site .
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I am happy to help people learn and acquiring new skills .
What I learned
I learned a lot from this project : from using bootstrap for UI to making a whole back-end in native PHP5 . The project taught me how to optimize database for better response.
What's next for CryptSteg
An classroom : nothing beats an one-to-one interaction between a student and teacher . I will implement an classrom ( google classroom) in near future to achieve that .
