About this product
- DescriptionEasily Accessible to Students with Nontechnical Backgrounds In a clear, ntechnical manner, Cryptology: Classical and Modern with Maplets explains how fundamental mathematical concepts are the bases of cryptographic algorithms. Designed for students with background in college-level mathematics, the book assumes minimal mathematical prerequisites and incorporates student-friendly Maplets throughout that provide practical examples of the techniques used. Techlogy Resource By using the Maplets, students can complete complicated tasks with relative ease. They can encrypt, decrypt, and cryptanalyze messages without the burden of understanding programming or computer syntax. The authors explain topics in detail first before introducing one or more Maplets. All Maplet material and exercises are given in separate, clearly labeled sections. Instructors can omit the Maplet sections without any loss of continuity and n-Maplet examples and exercises can be completed with, at most, a simple hand-held calculator. The Maplets are available for download at www.radford.edu/~npsigmon/cryptobook.html. A Gentle, Hands-On Introduction to Cryptology After introducing elementary methods and techniques, the text fully develops the Enigma cipher machine and Navajo code used during World War II, both of which are rarely found in cryptology textbooks. The authors then demonstrate mathematics in cryptology through moalphabetic, polyalphabetic, and block ciphers. With a focus on public-key cryptography, the book describes RSA ciphers, the Diffie-Hellman key exchange, and ElGamal ciphers. It also explores current U.S. federal cryptographic standards, such as the AES, and explains how to authenticate messages via digital signatures, hash functions, and certificates.
- Author BiographyRichard E. Klima is a professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Appalachian State University. Prior to Appalachian State, Dr. Klima was a cryptologic mathematician at the National Security Agency. He earned a Ph.D. in applied mathematics from North Carolina State University.
