Cryptography is now ubiquitous – moving beyond the traditional environments, such as government communications and banking systems, we see cryptographic techniques realized in Web browsers, e-mail programs, cell phones, manufacturing systems, embedded software, smart buildings, cars, and even medical implants. Today's designers need a comprehensive understanding of applied cryptography. After an introduction to cryptography and data security, the authors explain the main techniques in modern cryptography, with chapters addressing stream ciphers, the Data Encryption Standard (DES) and 3DES, the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), block ciphers, the RSA cryptosystem, public-key cryptosystems based on the discrete logarithm problem, elliptic-curve cryptography (ECC), digital signatures, hash functions, Message Authentication Codes (MACs), and methods for key establishment, including certificates and public-key infrastructure (PKI). Throughout the book, the authors focus on communicating the essentials and keeping the mathematics to a minimum, and they move quickly from explaining the foundations to describing practical implementations, including recent topics such as lightweight ciphers for RFIDs and mobile devices, and current key-length recommendations. The authors have considerable experience teaching applied cryptography to engineering and computer science students and to professionals, and they make extensive use of examples, problems, and chapter reviews, while the book’s website offers slides, projects and links to further resources. This is a suitable textbook for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses and also for self-study by engineers.

A How-to Guide for Implementing Algorithms and Protocols Addressing real-world implementation issues, Understanding and Applying Cryptography and Data Security emphasizes cryptographic algorithm and protocol implementation in hardware, software, and embedded systems. Derived from the author’s teaching notes and research publications, the text is designed for electrical engineering and computer science courses. Provides the Foundation for Constructing Cryptographic Protocols The first several chapters present various types of symmetric-key cryptographic algorithms. These chapters examine basic substitution ciphers, cryptanalysis, the Data Encryption Standard (DES), and the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). Subsequent chapters on public-key cryptographic algorithms cover the underlying mathematics behind the computation of inverses, the use of fast exponentiation techniques, tradeoffs between public- and symmetric-key algorithms, and the minimum key lengths necessary to maintain acceptable levels of security. The final chapters present the components needed for the creation of cryptographic protocols and investigate different security services and their impact on the construction of cryptographic protocols. Offers Implementation Comparisons By examining tradeoffs between code size, hardware logic resource requirements, memory usage, speed and throughput, power consumption, and more, this textbook provides students with a feel for what they may encounter in actual job situations. A solutions manual is available to qualified instructors with course adoptions.

As the world’s first decentralized digital currency, Bitcoin has the potential to revolutionize online payments systems in a way that benefits consumers and businesses. Instead of using an intermediary such as PayPal or submitting credit card information to a third party for verification—both of which often include transaction fees and other restrictions—Bitcoin allows individuals to pay each other directly for goods or services. The characteristics that make Bitcoin so innovative have also made it a target for regulators, who fear that the cryptocurrency will aid tax evasion, money laundering, and other crimes. While it is true that it can be used for nefarious purposes, the same can be said of cash. But, unlike cash, Bitcoin transactions are recorded in an online ledger. In this new primer published by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, Jerry Brito and Andrea Castillo describe how the digital currency works and address many of the common misconceptions about it. They also analyze current laws and regulations that may already cover digital currencies and warn against preemptively placing regulatory restrictions on Bitcoin that could stifle the new technology before it has a chance to evolve. In addition, they give several recommendations about how to treat Bitcoin going forward. Here, at the forefront of the debate, Brito and Castillo both support innovation and provide much-needed clarity for policymakers and law enforcement. A Spanish edition of this book is also available from the Mercatus Center.
