Decrypted Secrets: Methods and Maxims of Cryptology

Decrypted Secrets: Methods and Maxims of Cryptology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In today's increasingly wired world, cryptology plays a vital role in protecting communications channels, databases, and systems from unwanted intruders. This third edition of a classic reference work on cryptology now contains many new technical and biographical details. The first part discusses secret codes and their uses — cryptography. The second part deals with the process of covertly decrypting a secret code — cryptanalysis, where particular advice on assessing methods is given. The book presupposes only elementary mathematical knowledge. Spiced with a wealth of exciting, amusing, and sometimes personal stories from the history of cryptology, it will also interest general readers.

Synopsis:

The first part discusses the essentials of secret codes and the second part delves into the process of covertly decrypting a secret code. 182 illus.
