This new edition of the cryptography classic provides you with acomprehensive survey of modern cryptography. The book details howprogrammers and electronic communications professionals can usecryptography-the technique of enciphering and decipheringmessages-to maintain the privacy of computer data. It describesdozens of cryptography algorithms, gives practical advice on how toimplement them into cryptographic software, and shows how they canbe used to solve security problems. Covering the latestdevelopments in practical cryptographic techniques, this newedition shows programmers who design computer applications,networks, and storage systems how they can build security intotheir software and systems.
What's new in the Second Edition?
