My first book on cryptography. It is a good book for self learning and also class study. The concepts are very well explained. I did not find the book tedious like other theory books. But if the book have more pictures, it would be even easier to read.

Similar to Applied Cryptography Protocols Algorithms and Source Code in C, this book excels at teaching the math behind cryptography. However, being about the same age as Applied Crypto, it doesn't cover many of the modern algorithms in use. ...more

all you need is some mathematical background and you ready to go
one of two "most amazing " books ever wrote in the cryptography filed ,
applied cryptography for "Bruce schneier" make it more clear but handbook covers more theoretical mathematical details that you need
i love the "prime numbers" part the most

Good overview of cryptographic protocols. Gives the basics without touching on the actual implementation, handy for implementing algorithms in new languages.

Penuturannya terlalu matematis, sulit dipahami buat orang awam yang belum menguasai basic cryptography dan matematika (terutama Aljabar)

Heavy in maths. A reference and not a book to read for the first time if you want to learn about Cryptography.
