Publisher Comments:

Two of the world’s top experts in cryptography teach you how to secure your digital future

In today’s world, security is a top concern for businesses worldwide. Without a secure computer system, you don’t make money, you don’t expand, and–bottom line–you don’t survive. Cryptography holds great promise as the technology to provide security in cyberspace. Amazingly enough, no literature exists about how to implement cryptography and how to incorporate it into real-world systems. With Practical Cryptography, an author team of international renown provides you with the first hands-on cryptographic product implementation guide, bridging the gap between cryptographic theory and real-world cryptographic applications.

This follow-up guide to the bestselling Applied Cryptography dives in and explains the how-to of cryptography. You’ll find discussions on:

  • Practical rules for choosing and using cryptographic primitives, from block ciphers to digital signatures
  • Implementing cryptographic algorithms and systems in a secure way on today’s computers
  • A consistent design philosophy to ensure that every part of the system achieves the required security level
  • Why security affects every part of the system, and why it has to be a primary goal of the project
  • How simple interfaces for cryptographic primitives reduce system complexity and increase system security

Synopsis:

Definition of Topic: Security is the # 1 concern for business worldwide. The gold standard for attaining security is cryptography because it provides THE most reliable tools for storing or transmitting digital information.

Synopsis:

Bruce Schneier (Minneapolis, MN) is Founder and Chief Technical Officer at Counterpane Internet Security, a managed-security monitoring company. He is also the author of Secrets and Lies: Digital Security in a Networked World (0-471-25311-1).

Synopsis:

Die Kryptographie ist die Schlüsseltechnologie zur Sicherung gespeicherter und übertragener digitaler Information. Dieses Buch beschreibt die Kryptographie im Unterschied zu fast allen derzeit erhältlichen Werken auf diesem Gebiet nicht theoretisch, sondern erläutert praktische Aspekte der Implementation.
- eine konsequent praxisorientierte Anleitung für Systems Engineers und Techniker, kryptographische Algorithmen in Produkte einzubauen
- schlägt eine Brücke zwischen der verfügbaren theoretisch angelegten Literatur und der Praxis
- ideale Verbindung zu "Applied Cryptography" vom gleichen Autor; dort werden die Grundlagen der Kryptographie beschrieben
- die Autoren gehören zu den weltbesten Fachleuten ihres Gebiets

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 387-395) and index.
