Understanding Cryptography: A Textbook for Students and Practitioners

By Christof Paar, Jan Pelzl

Cryptography is now ubiquitous – relocating past the normal environments, equivalent to govt communications and banking structures, we see cryptographic ideas discovered in net browsers, e mail courses, cellphones, production structures, embedded software program, shrewdpermanent constructions, automobiles, or even scientific implants. state-of-the-art designers want a finished realizing of utilized cryptography.

After an creation to cryptography and information defense, the authors clarify the most thoughts in sleek cryptography, with chapters addressing movement ciphers, the knowledge Encryption typical (DES) and 3DES, the complex Encryption common (AES), block ciphers, the RSA cryptosystem, public-key cryptosystems in response to the discrete logarithm challenge, elliptic-curve cryptography (ECC), electronic signatures, hash capabilities, Message Authentication Codes (MACs), and strategies for key institution, together with certificate and public-key infrastructure (PKI). during the e-book, the authors concentrate on speaking the necessities and conserving the maths to a minimal, they usually movement fast from explaining the principles to describing useful implementations, together with contemporary themes equivalent to light-weight ciphers for RFIDs and cellular units, and present key-length recommendations.

The authors have massive event educating utilized cryptography to engineering and computing device technology scholars and to execs, they usually make huge use of examples, difficulties, and bankruptcy experiences, whereas the book’s web site bargains slides, tasks and hyperlinks to extra assets. it is a compatible textbook for graduate and complex undergraduate classes and in addition for self-study by way of engineers.

P2P Techniques for Decentralized Applications (Synthesis Lectures on Data Management)

By Esther Pacitti, Reza Akbarinia, Manal El-Dick

In its place to standard client-server structures, Peer-to-Peer (P2P) structures supply significant merits by way of scalability, autonomy and dynamic habit of work-mates, and decentralization of keep an eye on. therefore, they're like minded for large-scale information sharing in disbursed environments. many of the current P2P methods for facts sharing depend upon both based networks (e.g., DHTs) for effective indexing, or unstructured networks for ease of deployment, or a few mixture. although, those techniques have a few barriers, akin to loss of freedom for info placement in DHTs, and excessive latency and excessive community site visitors in unstructured networks. to handle those barriers, gossip protocols that are effortless to set up and scale good, could be exploited. during this publication, we are going to provide an outline of those assorted P2P options and architectures, speak about their trade-offs, and illustrate their use for decentralizing numerous large-scale info sharing applications.
