Major advances over the last five years precipitated this major revision of the bestselling "Cryptography: Theory and Practice". With more than 40 percent new or updated material, the second edition now provides an even more comprehensive treatment of modern cryptography. It focuses on the new Advanced Encryption Standards and features an entirely new chapter on that subject. Another new chapter explores the applications of secret sharing schemes, including ramp schemes, visual cryptography, threshold cryptography, and broadcast encryption. This is an ideal introductory text for both computer science and mathematics students and a valuable reference for more

Review quote

"This is a book that will give the professional the data needed to implement cryptographic software, and the mathematician hints on both code breaking and creating." - Books-on-Line About the First Edition: "If you want an in-depth mathematical treatise[Cryptography] is probably the most professional resource. It has an excellent introduction to the early systems, including a description of Claude Shannon's workThe material on hash functions is very detailed." -PC Update "My favorite of the current crop of undergraduate books is the second edition of Cryptography: Theory and Practice by Douglas Stinson. If I were learning/teaching cryptography for the first time to a class of undergraduate math majors, this is the book I would use." - Bulletin of the AMS "A comprehensive textbook that deals with all important core areas of modern cryptography...useful in a wide variety of approaches to the subject." - Cryptologiashow more
