About this book
A Classical Introduction to Cryptography: Applications for Communications Security introduces fundamentals of information and communication security by providing appropriate mathematical concepts to prove or break the security of cryptographic schemes.
This advanced-level textbook covers conventional cryptographic primitives and cryptanalysis of these primitives; basic algebra and number theory for cryptologists; public key cryptography and cryptanalysis of these schemes; and other cryptographic protocols, e.g. secret sharing, zero-knowledge proofs and undeniable signature schemes.
A Classical Introduction to Cryptography: Applications for Communications Security is rich with algorithms, including exhaustive search with time/memory tradeoffs; proofs, such as security proofs for DSA-like signature schemes; and classical attacks such as collision attacks on MD4. Hard-to-find standards, e.g. SSH2 and security in Bluetooth, are also included.
A Classical Introduction to Cryptography: Applications for Communications Security is designed for upper-level undergraduate and graduate-level students in computer science. This book is also suitable for researchers and practitioners in industry. A separate exercise/solution booklet is available as well, please go to www.springeronline.com under author: Vaudenay for additional details on how to purchase this booklet.
