Serious Cryptography: A Practical Introduction to Modern Encryption

Just what I was looking for, addresses most common crypto algorithms and points to weaknesses or ways how it can be weakened. Great for people planning to use or implement crypto libraries Philosopher Alfred North Whitehead noted that modern philosophy is simply a series of footnotes to Plato. When it comes to cryptography, much of it is simply footnotes to Bruce Schneier’s classic work Applied Cryptography: Protocols, Algorithms and...
