Cryptography is now ubiquitous – moving beyond the traditional environments, such as government communications and banking systems, we see cryptographic techniques realized in Web browsers, e-mail programs, cell phones, manufacturing systems, embedded software, smart buildings, cars, and even medical implants.
Today’s designers need a comprehensive understanding of applied Cryptography is now ubiquitous – moving beyond the traditional environments, such as government communications and banking systems, we see cryptographic techniques realized in Web browsers, e-mail programs, cell phones, manufacturing systems, embedded software, smart buildings, cars, and even medical implants.
Today’s designers need a comprehensive understanding of applied cryptography. After an introduction to cryptography and data security, the authors explain the main techniques in modern cryptography, with chapters addressing stream ciphers, the Data Encryption Standard DES and 3DES, the Advanced Encryption Standard AESblock ciphers, the RSA cryptosystem, public-key cryptosystems based on the discrete logarithm problem, elliptic-curve cryptography ECCdigital signatures, hash functions, Message Authentication Codes MACsand methods for key establishment, including certificates and public-key infrastructure PKI.
Throughout the book, the authors focus on communicating the essentials and keeping the mathematics to a minimum, and they move quickly from explaining the foundations to describing practical implementations, including recent topics such as lightweight ciphers for RFIDs and mobile devices, and current key-length recommendations.
The authors have considerable experience teaching applied cryptography to engineering and computer science students and to professionals, and they make extensive use of examples, problems, and chapter reviews, while the book’s website offers slides, projects and links to further resources. This understanidng a suitable textbook for graduate pzar advanced undergraduate courses and also for self-study by engineers. Cryptograhpypages.

Apr 27, Michael rated it it was amazing Shelves: I used this as a companion to the author’s 2-semester lecture series, which is freely available on YouTube or on the book’s own website: I found it very useful for brushing up on some topics in some more detail after watching the lectures.
In general this is a very practical introduction to the topic of cryptography that doesn’t shy away from the maths but also does not understandinh any prior knowledge of any of the advanced mathematical topics. Apr 22, Areej M.
Jun 30, Kamal rated it it was amazing. It’s a awesome book for learning cryptography I highly recommend this book to everyone that wants to start learning cryptography and L also recommend to watch prof. Christof Paar’s course in youtube based on this book. Aug 13, Scott Johnson rated it liked it. Cryptigraphy was a mistake on my part.
I eventually just skimmed a lot of christf for the principles and overall concepts, as this isn’t a topic to study any more in depth than that without the ability to actually take notes, do the math, and work out the problems.
That said, it seems thorough and well-written. I think the expectations of mathematical prerequisites could be more detailed, as there is a great deal of number theory and the author mentions you really just need calculus.
Maybe my cursory reading This was a mistake on my part. Maybe my cursory reading glossed over it, but I was also hoping for more discussion of the information entropy relating to these systems.
But I guess that’s more of a theoretical discussion and this was largely aimed at practice instead. Dec 05, Murray rated it really liked it. The only book on the subject I actually read, from cover to cover.
Parts of it were tough sledding, especially the stuff about Galois Fields aka Finite Fields. Galois was an interesting, but profoundly tragic guy. He certainly didn’t live long.
His work didn’t gain prominence or recognition til the 20th century. There is a book on his life, but I already know how it ends. Dec 24, Ro Givens rated it it was amazing. This book was a good foundation for my cryptography class, although a few points about ciphers used are now a bit out of date. Some of the math is a little advanced for undergraduate computer science students, but general ideas can be gleaned about ciphers requiring Galois theory or elliptic curves, for instance, without formally covering those topics.

Overall I enjoyed reading and using this book for my class. Sep 17, Amelia Treader rated cryptographhy really liked it. A book from my alternative reality i. One of the better expositions, though not quite as broad-based as it could be. Thorough, correct and comprehensible. It’s hard to expect much more from a book. May 20, Marco rated it really liked it. Interesting introduction, with a good balance between mathematical aspects and chrisyof protocols.
Jan 10, Ro Drop rated it really liked it. Watched videos of his class too. Videos definitely helped with understanding the math and processes.
