Introduction to Modern 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 their research, and it seems to be a pedagogically desirable approach as well.
