This practical guide to modern encryption breaks down the fundamental mathematical concepts at the heart of cryptography without shying away from meaty discussions of how they work. You’ll learn about authenticated encryption, secure randomness, hash functions, block ciphers, and public-key techniques such as RSA and elliptic curve cryptography.

You’ll also learn:
– Key concepts in cryptography, such as computational security, attacker models, and forward secrecy
– The strengths and limitations of the TLS protocol behind HTTPS secure websites
– Quantum computation and post-quantum cryptography
– About various vulnerabilities by examining numerous code examples and use cases
– How to choose the best algorithm or protocol and ask vendors the right questions

Each chapter includes a discussion of common implementation mistakes using real-world examples and details what could go wrong and how to avoid these pitfalls.

Whether you’re a seasoned practitioner or a beginner looking to dive into the field, Serious Cryptography will provide a complete survey of modern encryption and its applications.

Who Should Read This Book

While writing, Aumasson often imagined the reader as a developer who’d been exposed to crypto but still felt clueless and frustrated after attempting to read abstruse textbooks and research papers. Developers often need — and want — a better grasp of crypto to avoid unfortunate design choices, and Aumasson hoped this book would help. But if you aren’t a developer, don’t worry! The book doesn’t require any coding skills, and is accessible to anyone who understands the basics of computer science and college-level math (notions of probabilities, modular arithmetic, and so on). This book can nonetheless be intimidating, and despite its relative accessibility, it requires some effort to get the most out of it. We like the mountaineering analogy: the author paves the way, providing you with ropes and ice axes to facilitate your work, but you make the ascent yourself. Learning the concepts in this book will take an effort, but there will be a reward at the end.
