Abstract:

"This practical guide to modern encryption breaks down the fundamental mathematical concepts at the heart of cryptography without shying away from meaty discussions of how they work. You{u2019}ll learn about authenticated encryption, secure randomness, hash functions, block ciphers, and public-key techniques such as RSA and elliptic curve cryptography. You{u2019}ll also learn: Key concepts in cryptography, such as computational security, attacker models, and forward secrecy; The strengths and limitations of the TLS protocol behind HTTPS secure websites; Quantum computation and post-quantum cryptography; About various vulnerabilities by examining numerous code examples and use cases; How to choose the best algorithm or protocol and ask vendors the right questions"--Provided by publisher.
