Uniquely designed for students of engineering
and applied computer science, and engineering
practitioners. The authors have considerable
experience teaching applied cryptography to
engineering and computer science students
and to professionals, and they make extensive
use of examples, problems, and chapter
reviews, while the book’s website offers slides,
projects and links to further resources.
