About the Book

Book description

Build your real-world cryptography knowledge, from understanding the fundamentals to implementing the most popular modern-day algorithms to excel in your cybersecurity career

Key Features

  • Learn modern algorithms such as zero-knowledge, elliptic curves, and quantum cryptography
  • Explore vulnerability and new logical attacks on the most-used algorithms
  • Understand the practical implementation of algorithms and protocols in cybersecurity applications

Book Description

Cryptography Algorithms is designed to help you get up and running with modern cryptography algorithms. You'll not only explore old and modern security practices but also discover practical examples of implementing them effectively.

The book starts with an overview of cryptography, exploring key concepts including popular classical symmetric and asymmetric algorithms, protocol standards, and more. You'll also cover everything from building crypto codes to breaking them. In addition to this, the book will help you to understand the difference between various types of digital signatures. As you advance, you will become well-versed with the new-age cryptography algorithms and protocols such as public and private key cryptography, zero-knowledge protocols, elliptic curves, quantum cryptography, and homomorphic encryption. Finally, you'll be able to apply the knowledge you've gained with the help of practical examples and use cases.

By the end of this cryptography book, you will be well-versed with modern cryptography and be able to effectively apply it to security applications.
