"...absolutely brilliantly written.... I loved the chapters on PKI...a must read!..." (Information Security Bulletin, July 2003) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
In todays world, security is a top concern for businesses worldwide. Without a secure computer system, you dont make money, you dont expand, andbottom lineyou dont survive. Cryptography holds great promise as the technology to provide security in cyberspace. Amazingly enough, no literature exists about how to implement cryptography and how to incorporate it into real-world systems. With Practical Cryptography, an author team of international renown provides you with the first hands-on cryptographic product implementation guide, bridging the gap between cryptographic theory and real-world cryptographic applications.
This follow-up guide to the bestselling Applied Cryptography dives in and explains the how-to of cryptography. Youll find discussions on:
