Publisher Synopsis

From the reviews of the second edition:"The well-written and self-contained second edition `is designed for a professional audience composed of researchers practitioners in industry.' In addition, `this book is also suitable as a secondary text for graduate-level students in computer science, mathematics, and engineering,' as it contains about 300 problems. ... Overall ... `this monograph provides a survey of recent progress in Primality Testing and Integer Factorization, with implications in factoring-based Public Key Cryptography.'" (Hao Wang, ACM Computing Reviews, April, 2009)"This is the second edition of a book originally published in 2004. ... I used it as a reference in preparing lectures for an advanced cryptography course for undergraduates, and it proved to be a wonderful source for a general description of the algorithms. ... the book will be a valuable addition to any good reference library on cryptography and number theory ... . It contains descriptions of all the main algorithms, together with explanations of the key ideas behind them." (S. C. Coutinho, SIGACT News, April, 2012) Read more...
