Ce livre est présenté par David Kahn comme "le meilleur livre sur la cryptologie à ce séjour". On ne pouvait rêver meilleure publicité !

L'ouvrage présente les deux faces de la cryptologie : la cryptographie (l'art de chiffrer) et la cryptanalyse (l'art de briser les codes et chiffres).

Certaines parties sont techniquement ardues (sujet oblige !) mais l'ensemble se lit bien et propose une très bonne introduction sur ce vaste sujet.

Lecture réservée cependant à un public initié.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 For mathematicians, but it should be of interest to others 10 avril 2014
Par Metallurgist - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book was written by a mathematician, primarily for mathematicians, however, others should find quite a bit to interest them. The book discusses the mathematics of ciphers and to get the most from the book you should have a good working knowledge of set theory, group theory, series mathematics, matrix algebra, modular arithmetic, and Galois theory. This is not to say that if you are not familiar with these fields you will find nothing of interest here. Quite the contrary, as the book also contains a lot of non-mathematical information about codes and ciphers, particularly in regards to their use in WWII. There are sections on ‘Cryptology and Human Rights” (particularly in regards to the current use of ciphers and the Internet), “Maxims of Cryptology” and the history of cryptology. I found that I learned a lot, even though I was not conversant in all of the mathematical disciplines that are utilized. Unfortunately, the author takes for granted that the reader has the requisite mathematical background and therefore does not include any general mathematical material.

I would recommend this book the mathematicians who want information about applying their mathematics to ciphers, and to experts on ciphers who want to learn more about this highly mathematical approach. I would also recommend the book to someone, like myself, who is more interested in the historical aspects of ciphers, particularly as it applies to the last 100 years. I found the book to be a good adjunct to the other that I have read on this subject, but certainly would not recommend it as a first book on the subject, or to someone with only a casual interest in it.

What is in the Book –
The book is divided into two parts – Cryptography (codes, ciphers, their classification and development), and Cryptanalysis (the techniques used decipher encrypted messages). The approach of each section is to mathematically classify the cipher in question and in the Cryptology section describe how it operates and in the Cryptanalysis part how to go about deciphering each class. The book contains numerous examples of ciphers and their solution, but in a highly mathematical framework. Unfortunately, if you are unfamiliar with the mathematics then much of this material may be quite inaccessible to you.

I have been involved in the study, and application, of cryptology since 1997 when I originally read this book, which helped to educate me about the secretive but fascinating world of hidden codes. This book, Decrypted Secrets: Methods and Maxims of Cryptology, greatly assisted my hunt for the Shroud Codes, which led to my book, Shroud Codes in the Bible. The lessons I learned from books on cryptology were akin to going to a school for cryptology.

This is an amazing book, and relatively inexpensive; Springer-Verlag has done it again.
Rather than being a dry recitation of encryption and cryptanalysis schemes, Bauer provides a great deal of information about what actually goes wrong when one tries to construct a cipher that must be used under pressure by non-cryptologists, with plenty of historical examples to illustrate his points. And he discusses at some length the ways in which cryptanalysts can hope to unravel ciphers and codes too strong to be broken by standard methods. Much of what he has to say I had never seen in print before; some of it was brand new to me. Perhaps it helps that Bauer is German, and doesn't have to write with the uneasy feeling that NSA or MI-6 is looking over his shoulder at every line he writes. For example, his explanation of how Robert Murphy compromised an American cipher in WW II so badly that the Germans could read it easily is one that I think some American officials would probably still prefer not to have in print.
Despite comments by other reviewers and by Cryptologia, I think it requires a certain mathematical sophistication to absorb much of the material in this book. The math is not hard, but Bauer implicitly assumes a mathematical mindset and a familiarity with the terminology of pure mathematics that most college undergraduates don't have. So I wouldn't choose it as the primary text for a first course in cryptology, but I would certainly use it as a supplementary text. I know of no other book that contains so much material on the practical realities of cryptology.

This book isn't a great reading book; it's meant more for referencing. It goes in great mathematical detail on various crypto subjects.
