Product description


'One of the best books on the subject.' Cryptologia

Book Description

Most people acquainted with cryptology through cloak-and-dagger stories are unaware that many aspects of this art may be treated systematically. Sinkov explains the basis from which much more sophisticated cryptanalysis techniques have evolved. Included are programs in BASIC developed by Paul Irwin for use in his course based on this book.
