The authors’ presentation of it is just right.

They lead you though the process so that you can share in the delight of how ECC works. Mariamabdelrhman rated it it was amazing Mar 09, So I have the resources to investigate those. That said, it seems thorough and well-written. One of the better expositions, though not quite as broad-based as it could be.

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.

It has not only met my needs, but has exceeded them in every respect. It provides examples and explanations without being overly wordy, and is formatted to avoid large sections of block text. Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life. Customers who bought this item also bought. If you’ve heard people mention things like ECC, HMACs, discrete logarithms and wanted to what they were talking about; or if you wanted to understand who RSA and AES really work along with many other things, then this is the book for you.


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.

There are also bits that I don’t fully understand because I haven’t gone back and worked through the relevant exercises in the problem sets. I am sure that this makes an outstanding textbook for a college course in the matter, but I want to add that it is so clearly presented, organized with introductions to the necessary math that it works for self-study as well.

See all 69 reviews. 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 Understandding Encryption Standard AESblock ciphers, the RSA cryptosystem, public-key cryptosystems based on the discrete logarithm problem, elliptic-curve cryptography ECC crgptography, digital signatures, hash functions, Message Authentication Codes MACsand methods for key establishment, including certificates and public-key infrastructure PKI.

The information is presented in a very readable format, and is helpful for those looking for a great introduction to the subject of cryptography. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

The book also discusses the implementation in software and hardware of the main algorithms described. He has a Ph. Books by Christof Paar. I have read popularizations of cryptography, and had tried to make it though Applied Cryptography when it first came out inbut I can’t say that I really understood how the algorithms and the more intricate protocols worked.

Maybe my cursory reading This was a mistake on my part. Aug 13, Scott Johnson rated it liked it. A Practical Introduction unddrstanding Modern Encryption. His work didn’t gain prominence or recognition til the 20th century. Published October 19th by Springer first published December 10th Maybe my cursory reading glossed over it, but I was also hoping for more discussion of the information entropy relating to these systems.

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. Haitham rated it it was amazing Sep 16, A Textbook for Students and Practitioners. Curro rated it really liked it Nov 25,
