Lecture Notes on Cryptography
by Shafi Goldwasser, Mihir Bellare
Number of pages: 289
This is a set of lecture notes on cryptography compiled for 687s, a one week long course on cryptography taught at MIT by Shafi Goldwasser and Mihir Bellare in the summers of 1996-2001. Cryptography is of course a vast subject. The thread followed by these notes is to develop and explain the notion of provable security and its usage for the design of secure protocols.

Multiple aspects of public-key cryptography are examined. The author covers the theory of provably secure public-key cryptography and the implementation of exponentiation and multi-exponentiation. An introduction to provable security is provided.

This guide describes how to use PGP to manage your organization’s messages and data. It is an overview of the terminology and concepts of PGP products. It contains discussions of security, privacy, and the vulnerabilities inherent in PGP.

This is a thoroughly written wonderful book on cryptography! This excellent book is warmly recommended for mathematicians, computer scientists, for professors and students, and, as a reference book, for researchers in the area of cryptography.
by Mihir Bellare, Phillip Rogaway
The viewpoint taken throughout these notes is to emphasize the theory of cryptography as it can be applied to practice. This is an approach that the authors have pursued in the research, and it seems to be a pedagogically desirable approach as well.
