Biographie de l'auteur

Albert Sweigart (but you can call him Al), is a software developer in San Francisco, California. He is originally from Houston, Texas. He laughs out loud when watching park squirrels, which makes people think he’s a simpleton. His previous books are "Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python" and "Making Games with Python & Pygame".

Great book for learning python 5 mai 2013
Par Vernon D. Burt - Publié sur
I started reading this book being familiar with python but not with doing encryption via python. The lessons don't assume the reader knows anything about programming. A more experienced programmer might want to skip the first few 6 chapters as they deal with string manipulation basics and simple ciphers. The book lays a good foundation on how to encrypt text and decrypt text. I appreciated that it was a beginners book that covered an interesting subject beyond the usual array of 'Hello World' programs.

A Fabulous Python Book 24 juin 2013
Par rpv - Publié sur
This is an excellent Python book that teaches the language through fascinating cryptographic algorithms. First about the organization of the book. Very pleasing typeset and nice font size. Code is written inside boxes. The layout and author's style make it an excellent read. The book is accompanies with the author's website where all programs are available for download, though author rightfully asks readers to type in the program themselves. There is even a 'diff' program that author provides in his website which compares readers's program to one on the book, thereby facilitating faster troubleshooting. The book has 24 chapters. Most chapters have a quote that is very relevant from security point of view.

The first chapter gets the reader introduced into cryptography. I asked my 10 yr old daughter to follow along on few chapters. She got fascinated by the hands on exercises in the first chapter (Author asks for the cipher wheel to be photocopied and cut to make paper ciphers). Kids will have great fun with coded messages while introducing to crypto concepts. Next few chapters gets a reader to install Python (version 3) in Windows, Linux or MAC. For a novice, the instructions and screenshots are sure to help. The shell, string functions, writing programs and executing them should become easy once reader goes through first 5 chapters. There are exercises in the book's website which are essential to master the concepts. All programming language constructs are tied together in the chapter 6 where Caesar cipher is implemented.

It is really interesting to learn Python through one domain area. The reader masters both Python and Crypto concepts. Author shows how Caesar cipher can be hacked easily and then explains and then implements a transposition cipher. Programs are only as good as it is implemented. There could be bugs introduced in the system. There is a chapter on writing a test program in Python. When needed math concepts are also introduced (chapter 14 - modular arithmetic; Chapter 23 - prime numbers). Other ciphers explained and implemented in Python in this book are Affine cipher, Substitution cipher, Vigenere cipher, and one time pad cipher. The last chapter takes the reader into public key cryptography and RSA Cipher.

This book is a delight to learn Python for all levels of people. I know few kids who want to write apps and start learning in a quick fashion with an aim of producing something. In the long run, without a fundamental strong background it will hurt. Python is an ideal first language these days (not BASIC anymore!) and this books perfectly fits the need. The author's writing style, systematic focus on examples and exercises makes it very easy to learn. As a byproduct to learning Python, you also learn cryptography which is a fascinating discipline. I also recommend Author's other Python books highly - Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python, 2nd Edition and Making Games with Python & Pygame.

Get started with crypto in Python 2 avril 2014
Par RHH - Publié sur
What an introduction to cryptography! My first intro to crypto was through Cryptonomicon, and since then I've had a bit of an interest in coding and decoding messages. Interestingly enough, this book doesn't even start with computer science at all! Instead it provides a useful overview of cryptography on paper. To a certain extent, this is exactly like the Ovaltine Decoder Ring from a Christmas Story! From there is discusses implementation of several different cryptographic styles on the computer. It also contains a section on setting up your dev environment, which is hopefully unnecessary since I hope you've read his other books! This book especially excels in teaching how to utilize strings in Python. The section on detecting english is especially interesting! All of this is something I've had a chance to implement in my work. It's certainly a great book to develop our python skills. It's probably a harder sell to kids as this book doesn't cover game development like his other ones, but this book is certainly at a very understandable level. It even culminates in RSA and man in the middle attacks – useful knowledge for anyone advancing in CS these days. I wholeheartedly recommend it to any budding programmers and especially those interested in crypto!

The perfect beginners guide to cryptography! 1 avril 2014
Par Martin - Publié sur
After reading a portion of the book I can truly say that this book is a must have book for any individual interested & looking to learn cryptography! This book is incredibly captivating for the average soul who has no prior knowledge in cryptography. Cryptography is a very interesting subject, and although you don't get into the crazy stuff yet in this book, the knowledge you learn from this book is amazing and a necessity for future books. Here are a few benefits reading this book.

- I was always slightly confused with Cryptography. This book is GREAT for beginners. I am never too confused like I usually am.
- After reading a big portion of the book, I am excited for what's coming next in the book! This book is captivating and is a fun journey going through it.
- I love the subtle humor, which makes the book that much more enjoyable.

If you want to get into hacking, you won't become a l33t hacker from this book, but reading this book WILL introduce you to it. I can't think of any other book that will help you learn so much and keep you interested as much as this book. I always loved the idea of cryptography and this book really helped me grow in terms of crystallographic knowledge.

Interesting way to learn Python 15 avril 2013
Par pranith - Publié sur
My main motivation for reading this book was to learn python. But in ordinary books you just learn the syntax and a few simple examples, which is boring. Learning a new cipher and trying to implement it in python present you with a challenge and gets you to think and learn in a much faster and in-depth way! I am still reading the book and will post an update once I am done!
