The edition I had was probably a bit out of date but it was readable and fairly clearly explained, although there were some parts where it seemed like the author was just rehashing the relevant RFC/standard. This is good for people who know nothing liek me as a sort of overview, but if u are looking for theoretical details or at the other end of the spectrum, practical implementation details, better find a different book.

EDIT: please note a lot of stuff in this book e.g. the PGP email stuff is o

Shelves: درسی
کتابی به نظر پر و سنگین. شاید تعداد صفحات گویا باشد
ولی در مجموع بسیار کتاب پایه ای و مقدماتی میباشد
در این کتاب کلیات رمز نگاری و امنیت داده و شبکه مورد بحث قرار میگیرد
کمتر کسی به عنوان خارج درس شاید به این کتاب نگاه خاصی داشته باشد
پس برای دانشجویان کارشناسی ارشد شبکه یا رمز توصیه میکنم

It was great to have it from my friend , and you know it's a study book for that I rated it with 3 , but really I didn't read the whole book , and still I didn't like the way its information presented to the students :( , it was really black , and no more hash explanation that I personally like to see in IT Books. even that I like Cryptography so much , but this book wasn't something which will make you love it . ...more

I gives you the principles of cryptography, although some believes it's a good start, I think you need to be an expert or someone with IT background to get the benefit you expect. Great book to add to your library, very detailed and concepts are well explained. ...more

Buku literatur untuk memahami cryptography dan keamanan data, diulas dengan sangat mudah dipahami.

The history of cryptanalysis shows that a problem that seems insoluble from one perspective can be found to have a solution if looked at in an entirely different way.

Not the easiest book to read or study. Fairly dated in this edition, still valuable as starting point.
