This book is a comprehensive, rigorous introduction to what the authors name ‘modern’ cryptography … a novel approach to how cryptography is taught, replacing the older, construction-based approach. … The concepts are clearly stated, both in an intuitive fashion and formally. … I would heartily recommend this book to anyone who is interested in cryptography. … the exercises are challenging and interesting, and can benefit readers of all academic levels. …
―IACR book reviews, January 2010
Over the past 30 years, cryptography has been transformed from a mysterious art into a mathematically rigorous science. The textbook by Jonathan Katz and Yehuda Lindell finally makes this modern approach to cryptography accessible to a broad audience. Readers of this text will learn how to think precisely about the security of protocols against arbitrary attacks, a skill that will remain relevant and useful regardless of how technology and cryptography standards change. The book uses just enough formalism to maintain precision and rigor without obscuring the development of ideas. It manages to convey both the theory's conceptual beauty and its relevance to practice. I plan to use it every time I teach an undergraduate course in cryptography.

… the greatest attribute is the fact that the material is presented in such a unified way. These are not just a collection of topics from cryptography, thrown together at random. One topic leads effortlessly to the next. As such, this is a virtually indispensible resource for modern cryptography.
―Donald L. Vestal, South Dakota State University, MAA Online, July 2008
… gives an excellent introduction to the theoretical background of cryptography. It would be a fine textbook for an advanced undergraduate (or graduate) course in theoretical computer science for students who have already seen the rudiments of cryptography. It will be a valuable reference for researchers in the field …
―Steven D. Galbraith, Mathematical Reviews, 2009b
The book is highly recommended as a textbook in cryptography courses at graduate or advanced undergraduate levels … covers in a splendid way the main notions of current cryptography from the point of view of information-theoretical security. This corresponds indeed to a modern cryptography approach.

This was a recommended optional book for a class I took on cryptography. The class was really challenging and changed how I look at things. The class was like a super compressed version of this book. For this reason it is nice to have.
Even though the class is over I am still working through the book.
You will discover that in modern cryptography there are a number of constructs that a useful encryption system must pass. When looked at in this way a number of encryption schemes are vulnerable and you will understand why. You will discover standards are not all good; that good standards can be are flawed by poor usage; and that you do not want to write your own.
You will gain confidence in how your data is encrypted. Best of all when you read someone's paper you will know what they are saying with all those little symbols and theorems.
I purchased this to go along with prof Katz' Coursera course on encryption, and it's been a helpful study aid.
