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.


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 undersganding offers slides, projects and links to further resources.

Be the first to ask a question about Understanding Cryptography. It really walks the dog but has gotten Interesting introduction, with a good balance between mathematical aspects and practical protocols.
