Applied Mathematics for Encryption and Information SecurityeBook - 2016
This comprehensive guide to modern data encryption makes cryptography accessible to information security professionals of all skill levels-with no math expertise required Cryptography underpins today's cyber-security; however, few information security professionals have a solid understanding of these encryption methods due to their complex mathematical makeup. Modern Cryptography: Applied Mathematics for Encryption and Information Security leads readers through all aspects of the field, providing a comprehensive overview of cryptography and practical instruction on the latest encryption methods. The book begins with an overview of the evolution of cryptography and moves on to modern protocols with a discussion of hashes, cryptanalysis, and steganography. From there, seasoned security author Chuck Easttom provides readers with the complete picture-full explanations of real-world applications for cryptography along with detailed implementation instructions. Unlike similar titles on the topic, this reference assumes no mathematical expertise-the reader will be exposed to only the formulas and equations needed to master the art of cryptography. *Concisely explains complex formulas and equations and makes the math easy *Teaches even the information security novice critical encryption skills * Written by a globally-recognized security expert who has taught cryptography to various government and civilian groups and organizations around the world. --Provided by publisher.
