Cryptography is not OS dependent. All of the accepted algorithms are implemented in pretty much all Linux cryptographic extensions.

The concept for cryptography isn't Linux only. What are you trying to find out?

There is no such thing as cryptography only for Linux. The blog post cited above is great article on common implementations of cryptography within Linux, but I have a lot of those implementations running on my Windows PC too, errrr, rather on my Windows PC only.

zinnia,

I suggest you use Google to search for "MOOCS cryptography".

Massive Open Online Courses (free).
