Introduction To Cryptography With Coding Theory (2nd Edition)
Introduction to Cryptography with Coding Theory (2nd Edition)
With its conversational tone and practical focus, this text mixes applied and theoretical aspects for a solid introduction to cryptography and security, including the latest significant advancements in the field. Assumes a minimal background. The level of math sophistication is equivalent to a course in linear algebra. Presents applications and protocols where cryptographic primitives are used in practice, such as SET and SSL. Provides a detailed explanation of AES, which has replaced Feistel-based ciphers (DES) as the standard block cipher algorithm. Includes expanded discussions of block ciphers, hash functions, and multicollisions, plus additional attacks on RSA to make readers aware of the strengths and shortcomings of this popular scheme. For engineers interested in learning more about cryptography.
From the Back Cover
This book assumes a minimal background in programming and a level of math sophistication equivalent to a course in linear algebra. It provides a flexible organization, as each chapter is modular and can be covered in any order. Using Mathematica, Maple, and MATLAB, computer examples included in an Appendix explain how to do computation and demonstrate important concepts. A full chapter on...
