Editorial Reviews

Review

It is a very leisurely reading, well-structured and very detailed. It does not assume any mathematical knowledge, making it suitable for being used as a manual for a course on introduction to cryptography. Vicente Munoz, the European Mathematical Society On a page per page basis it actually represents great value, and should achieve a long shelf life as both textbook and good reference source In terms of a score; for students a 9.5, practitioners 8.5 and general interest readers 8.5, giving an overall average of 9/10. Overall, an excellent book. Mike Rees MBCS CITP, The British Computer Society Everyday Cryptography: Fundamental Principles and Applications is an excellent reference. Jawa Eyes

Format: Paperback
When Bruce Schneier first published Applied Cryptography in 1994, it was a watershed event, given that is was one of the first comprehensive texts on the topic that existed outside of the military.

In the nearly 20 years since the book came out, a lot has changed in the world of encryption and cryptography. A number of books have been written to fill that gap and Everyday Cryptography: Fundamental Principles and Applications is one of them that have recently been published.

While the title Everyday Cryptography may give the impression that this is an introductory text; that is not the case. Author Keith Martin is the director of the information security group at Royal Holloway, a division of the University of London, and the book is meant for information security professionals in addition to being used as a main reference for a principles of cryptography course. The book is also a great reference for those studying for the CISSP exam.

While the book notes that almost no prior knowledge of mathematics is required since the book deliberately avoids the details of the mathematical techniques underpinning cryptographic mechanisms. That might be a bit of a misnomer as the book does get into the mathematics of cryptography. While the mathematics in the book is not overwhelming, they are certainly not underwhelming. For those that want a deeper look, the book includes an appendix for many of the mathematical concepts detailed in the book.

Two benefits of the book are that it stresses practical aspects of cryptography and real-world scenarios. The mathematics detailed avoids number theory with a focus on practicability.

Cryptography is like music. No matter how many times you listen to a piece of music, you always hear something different. Also, although there are rules of composition, you need creativity to make it work. Professor Martin's book offers a number of readable insights into cryptography, a subject that many security professionals have studied before. This is a book that emphasizes practical considerations over math and does a good job of this. Expecially interesting are discussions on "academic" security attacks; a clear exposition of DES; concepts of deterministic and non-deterministic random number generators; SSL cryptography; and mobile phone crypto. The book is a text book for MS level students. So it does read like a text book, and may be a little difficult for everyday or cover to cover reading. Overall, for most security professionals, this book is worth having and absorbing.

Used this book for my Data Protection Class! Excellent book!
I'm not a math guy, so there were a few sections that were over my head. Overall, it was understandable and great information!
