An Introduction to Mathematical Cryptography (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics)by Jeffrey Hoffstein
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:This selfcontained introduction to modern cryptography emphasizes the mathematics behind the theory of public key cryptosystems and digital signature schemes. The book focuses on these key topics while developing the mathematical tools needed for the construction and security analysis of diverse cryptosystems. Only basic linear algebra is required of the reader; techniques from algebra, number theory, and probability are introduced and developed as required. The book covers a variety of topics that are considered central to mathematical cryptography. Key topics include: * classical cryptographic constructions, such as DiffieHellmann key exchange, discrete logarithmbased cryptosystems, the RSA cryptosystem, and digital signatures; * fundamental mathematical tools for cryptography, including primality testing, factorization algorithms, probability theory, information theory, and collision algorithms; * an indepth treatment of important recent cryptographic innovations, such as elliptic curves, elliptic curve and pairingbased cryptography, lattices, latticebased cryptography, and the NTRU cryptosystem. This book is an ideal introduction for mathematics and computer science students to the mathematical foundations of modern cryptography. The book includes an extensive bibliography and index; supplementary materials are available online.
Synopsis:An Introduction to Mathematical Cryptography provides an introduction to public key cryptography and underlying mathematics that is required for the subject. Each of the eight chapters expands on a specific area of mathematical cryptography and provides an extensive list of exercises. It is a suitable text for advanced students in pure and applied mathematics and computer science, or the book may be used as a selfstudy. This book also provides a selfcontained treatment of mathematical cryptography for the reader with limited mathematical background.
