Cryptographic techniques have applications far beyond the obvious uses of encoding and decoding information. For Internet developers who need to know about capabilities, such as digital signatures, that depend on cryptographic techniques, there's no better overview than Applied Cryptography, the definitive book on the subject. Bruce Schneier covers general classes of cryptographic protocols and then specific techniques, detailing the inner workings of real-world cryptographic algorithms including the Data Encryption Standard and RSA public-key cryptosystems. The book includes source-code listings and extensive advice on the practical aspects of cryptography implementation, such as the importance of generating truly random numbers and of kee...

Book description
The Security Architecture for the Internet Protocol, IPsec, is already defining the way organizations and individuals secure their networks. There is no single document that describes IPsec, but rather an entire body of work, the Requests for Comments (RFC's). This book compiles and organizes these important documents in a single printed volume, and adds a glossary and extensive index. This means you no longer have to wade through countless RFC's trying to find the answer to your IPsec question - all solutions are compiled in a single book, with an index that makes them even easier to locate. Every RFC describing an aspect of the IPsec standard is included here, as are descriptions of most of the cryptographic algorithms used in IPsec. If ... Rest of this review on the detail page
