New edition of Everyday Cryptography published

Posted on 13/07/2017

everyday cryptography 2The second edition of Everyday Cryptography by Prof. Keith Martin has just been published by Oxford University Press. This book grew from the core module Introduction to Cryptography on Royal Holloway's MSc Information Security, and is designed to introduce students and information security professionals to the subject, without requiring them to absorb the mathematical detail behind cryptography. The book can be read as a standalone guide, or used as the basis for an educational course (it includes supporting activities to further explore themes covered in each chapter).

The new edition is considerably expanded from the first edition published in 2012, which introduces the fundamentals behind cryptographic mechanisms and key management, as well as case studies of cryptography in action. The second edition includes updates to key technologies and new material on the likes of Tor, bitcoin, TLS 1.3, iPhone cryptography, WhatsApp cryptography, as well as a full chapter on the control of cryptography, following the Edward Snowden revelations.
