4.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing, 2 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Applied Cryptography: Protocols, Algorithms and Source Code in C (Computer Science) (Paperback)
Bruce Schneier is one of the most respected persons in the field of cryptography.
His work provides a good in-depth description of crypto protocols, signature systems, hashing & digests
and some of the well-known cipher systems (at the time of publication).
His presentation of the material is well balanced between concept & mathematical description.
Unfortunately due to both space restrictions & the US embargo on exporting crypto material there is a limit on how much
source code could be included in the book. I would have liked to see source code for
hashing & signatures.
Schneier offers discs with much more source but they can only be legally provided
to residents of the US & Canada thus I have to reduce my overall rating of this fine work to four stars.
Nevertheless as a reference on crypto algorithms & protocols, this remains a fine work.
