It is a very leisurely reading, well-structured and very detailed. It does not assume any mathematical knowledge, making it suitable for being used as a manual for a course on introduction to cryptography. (Vicente Muñoz, the European Mathematical Society)
On a page per page basis it actually represents great value, and should achieve a long shelf life as both textbook and good reference source In terms of a score; for students a 9.5, practitioners 8.5 and general interest readers 8.5, giving an overall average of 9/10. Overall, an excellent book. (Mike Rees MBCS CITP, The British Computer Society)
Everyday Cryptography: Fundamental Principles and Applications is an excellent reference. (Jawa Eyes)
Présentation de l'éditeur
transient current technologies and over-whelming theoretical research.
Everyday Cryptography is a self-contained and widely accessible introductory text. Almost no prior knowledge of mathematics is required since the book deliberately avoids the details of the mathematical techniques underpinning cryptographic mechanisms, though a short appendix is included for those looking for a deeper appreciation of some of the concepts involved. By the end of this book, the reader will not only be able to understand the practical issues concerned with the
deployment of cryptographic mechanisms, including the management of cryptographic keys, but will also be able to interpret future developments in this fascinating and increasingly important area of technology.
