Cryptography plays a key role in ensuring the privacy and integrity of data and the security of computer networks. Introduction to Modern Cryptography provides a rigorous yet accessible treatment of modern cryptography, with a focus on formal definitions, precise assumptions, and rigorous proofs.

The authors introduce the core principles of modern cryptography, including the modern, computational approach to security that overcomes the limitations of perfect secrecy. An extensive treatment of private-key encryption and message authentication follows. The authors also illustrate design principles for block ciphers, such as the Data Encryption Standard (DES) and the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), and present provably secure constructions of block ciphers from lower-level primitives. The second half of the book focuses on public-key cryptography, beginning with a self-contained introduction to the number theory needed to understand the RSA, Diffie-Hellman, El Gamal, and other cryptosystems. After exploring public-key encryption and digital signatures, the book concludes with a discussion of the random oracle model and its applications.

Serving as a textbook, a reference, or for self-study, Introduction to Modern Cryptography presents the necessary tools to fully understand this fascinating subject.

Über den Autor (2008)

Jonathan Katz, best known as Comedy Central's Dr. Katz, was born in Canada and raised in Brooklyn, New York. He attended Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont. Katz worked as a standup comic before creating an animated short for Comedy Central, A Biography of Mr. Katz. It was renamed Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, and became an Emmy-winning television show guest-starring many top comedians, such as Gary Shandling, Steven Wright and Janeane Garofalo. The success of the show led to the book Comedy Central's Dr. Katz: Hey, I've Got My Own Problems and the audiocassette Dr. Katz's Therapy Sessions.
