A Graduate Course in Applied Cryptography
by Dan Boneh, Victor Shoup
Publisher: cryptobook.us 2017
Number of pages: 818
This book is about constructing practical cryptosystems for which we can argue security under plausible assumptions. The book covers many constructions for different tasks in cryptography. For each task we define a precise security goal that we aim to achieve and then present constructions that achieve the required goal.

These notes contain the central mathematical background needed for understanding modern data encryption methods, and introduce applications in cryptography and various protocols. The fledgling quantum cryptography is briefly introduced.
by Bodo Moeller - TU Darmstadt
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.

We present the principles behind quantum key distribution and discuss a few well-known QKD protocols. We focus more on the implementation of QKD protocols rather than security analysis. Another topic covered here is the security of QKD systems.

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.
