Computer Security and Cryptography

Alan G. Konheim


Gain the talents and information had to create powerful info protection systems

This ebook updates readers with all of the instruments, strategies, and ideas had to comprehend and enforce information protection structures. It provides quite a lot of issues for an intensive knowing of the criteria that impact the potency of secrecy, authentication, and electronic signature schema. most significantly, readers achieve hands-on event in cryptanalysis and how you can create potent cryptographic systems.

The writer contributed to the layout and research of the knowledge Encryption normal (DES), a general symmetric-key encryption set of rules. His options are in keeping with firsthand event of what does and doesn't work.

Thorough in its insurance, the e-book begins with a dialogue of the historical past of cryptography, together with an outline of the fundamental encryption structures and plenty of of the cipher platforms utilized in the 20th century. the writer then discusses the speculation of symmetric- and public-key cryptography. Readers not just become aware of what cryptography can do to guard delicate information, but in addition study the sensible boundaries of the know-how. The publication ends with chapters that discover quite a lot of cryptography applications.

Three uncomplicated varieties of chapters are featured to facilitate learning:

  • Chapters that strengthen technical skills
  • Chapters that describe a cryptosystem and current a style of analysis
  • Chapters that describe a cryptosystem, current a mode of research, and supply difficulties to check your clutch of the cloth and your skill to enforce functional solutions

With shoppers changing into more and more cautious of id robbery and firms suffering to increase secure, safe structures, this ebook is key examining for execs in e-commerce and knowledge expertise. Written by way of a professor who teaches cryptography, it's also perfect for students.
