Comment: Cryptography, in particular public-key cryptography, has emerged in the last 20 years as an important discipline that is not only the subject of an enormous amount of research, but provides the foundation for information security in many applications. Standards are emerging to meet the demands for cryptographic protection in most areas of data communications. Public-key cryptographic techniques are now in widespread use, especially in the financial services industry, in the public sector, and by individuals for their personal privacy, such as in electronic mail. This Handbook will serve as a valuable reference for the novice as well as for the expert who needs a wider scope of coverage within the area of cryptography. It is a necessary and timely guide for professionals who practice the art of cryptography. The Handbook of Applied Cryptography provides a treatment that is multifunctional. It serves as an introduction to the more practical aspects of both conventional and public-key cryptography. It is a valuable source of the latest techniques and algorithms for the serious practitioner. It provides an integrated treatment of the field, while still presenting each major topic as a self-contained unit. It provides a mathematical treatment to accompany practical discussions. It contains enough abstraction to be a valuable reference for theoreticians while containing enough detail to actually allow implementation of the algorithms discussed. Now in its third printing, this is the definitive cryptography reference that the novice as well as experienced developers, designers, researchers, engineers, computer scientists, and mathematicians alike will use.Hardback copy in good condition, slight damage to the lower back corner of the spine.

Product description

Review

"very well suited for the reader who wants an encyclopedic description of the state of the art of applied modern cryptography." -Mathematical Reviews, Issue 99g "[This book] is an incredible achievement. [T]he handbook is complete. If I want to check what problems there were with a proposed system, determine how the variations on a particular algorithm developed, see what research preceded and followed an idea, I go to the Handbook. The Handbook has accurate, clear, and correct information. It is wonderful. If I were limited to only one cryptography text on my shelves, it would be the Handbook of Applied Cryptography." - Bulletin of the AMS

Synopsis

Cryptography, in particular public-key cryptography, has emerged in the last 20 years as an important discipline that is not only the subject of an enormous amount of research, but provides the foundation for information security in many applications. Standards are emerging to meet the demands for cryptographic protection in most areas of data communications. Public-key cryptographic techniques are now in widespread use, especially in the financial services industry, in the public sector, and by individuals for their personal privacy, such as in electronic mail. This Handbook will serve as a valuable reference for the novice as well as for the expert who needs a wider scope of coverage within the area of cryptography. It is a necessary and timely guide for professionals who practice the art of cryptography."The Handbook of Applied Cryptography" provides a treatment that is multifunctional. It serves as an introduction to the more practical aspects of both conventional and public-key cryptography. It is a valuable source of the latest techniques and algorithms for the serious practitioner.

It provides an integrated treatment of the field, while still presenting each major topic as a self-contained unit. It provides a mathematical treatment to accompany practical discussions. It contains enough abstraction to be a valuable reference for theoreticians while containing enough detail to actually allow implementation of the algorithms discussed. Now in its third printing, this is the definitive cryptography reference that the novice as well as experienced developers, designers, researchers, engineers, computer scientists, and mathematicians alike will use.
