About The Book

Why A Third Edition?
The art and science of cryptography has been evolving for thousands of years. Now, with unprecedented amounts of information circling the globe, we must be prepared to face new threats and employ new encryption schemes on an ongoing basis. This edition updates relevant chapters with the latest advances and includes seven additional chapters covering:
Pseudorandom bit generation in cryptography
Entity authentication, including schemes built from primitives and special purpose “zero-knowledge” schemes
Key establishment including key distribution and protocols for key agreement, both with a greater emphasis on security models and proofs
Public key infrastructure, including identity-based cryptography
Secret sharing schemes
Multicast security, including broadcast encryption and copyright protection


Providing mathematical background in a “just-in-time” fashion, informal descriptions of cryptosystems along with more precise pseudocode, and a host of numerical examples and exercises, Cryptography: Theory and Practice, Third Edition offers comprehensive, in-depth treatment of the methods and protocols that are vital to safeguarding the mind-boggling amount of information circulating around the world.


Provides comprehensive coverage along with the latest developments in cryptography
Covers many new practical schemes, such as Guillou-Quisquater, Okamoto, and Schnorr schemes
Details the various types of protocols and how party identities are verified
Includes digital fingerprinting schemes, multicast security, and copyright protection issues
Supplies rigorous analysis of cryptographic protocols for identification, key distribution, and key agreement
Contains numerous examples and exercises
