Learn to build cryptographic protocols that work in the real world
Knowing how a camera works does not make you a great photographer. Knowing what cryptographic designs are and how existing cryptographic protocols work does not give you proficiency in using cryptography. You must learn to think like a cryptographer.
That is what this book will teach you. Dive deeply into specific, concrete cryptographic protocols and learn why certain decisions were made. Recognize the challenges and how to overcome them. With this book, which is suitable for both classroom and self-study, you will learn to use cryptography effectively in real-world systems.
* Understand what goes into designing cryptographic protocols
* Develop an understanding of the interface between cryptography and the surrounding system, including people, economics, hardware, software, ethics, policy, and other aspects of the real world
* Look beyond the security protocol to see weaknesses in the surrounding system
* Thwart the adversary by understanding how adversaries think
* Learn how to build cryptography into new products

HASH(0x921e5edc) von 5 Sternen Long awaited update of the Practical Cryptography 12. März 2010
Von Mihailo Despotovic - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I just got the book, skimmed over it and compared it with the 1st edition (Practical Cryptography).

First of all, if you don't have the 1st edition, this is an excellent buy. It's a "middle ground" book and probably the one you should start with if you are interested in practical cryptography. Then, depending on your interests and needs, you could proceed to a technically and mathematically much deeper (but somewhat obsolete) Applied Cryptography: Protocols, Algorithms, and Source Code in C, Second Edition or to some other direction using the foundation laid down in this book and then getting other book(s) about "hard-core" mathematics of cryptography or about "softer" methods of social engineering and real-life security.

I will now assume you know what the book is all about and that you are considering upgrading it so here are some quick things I hope to help you deciding:

- first of all, obviously, the errata from the 1st edition is incorporated into the text (there is no errata for the 2nd edition yet but keep checking on the book's home page [ [..] ]) which also contains the links from the book so you don't have to type them yourself while investigating
- the algorithms, protocols and formulas look the same but they might have minor tweaks, most of the stuff I looked up is the same as in the 1st edition
- the 2nd edition has 60 pages less and that's because the line spacing is smaller (the text is more dense) and not because some material has been omitted (at least I could not find anything significant being removed)
- one (really small) speculative mathematical subchapter has been removed (4.5.6 in 1st edition: Equation Solving Attacks); I guess the attack/math did not turn out to work
- the new addition to the team of the authors is a university professor and, as a result of that, the book has more of a textbook feel: exercises at the end of each chapter are added and the preface now contains example syllabi subchapter with three course proposals (6, 10 and 12 week) based on the book; it is also mentioned in the preface that the book is now "more suited for a self-study"
- the chapter layout is exactly the same as in 1st edition but off by one since "Our Design Philosophy" from the 1st edition has been presented a bit later as a subchapter of another chapter
- there are more references at the end (130 vs 97)
- minor: the cover is more boring, it really looks and, with the denser text inside, feels like a textbook while the 1st edition looked more like an engineering/hacking book

These are my very first quick and most likely incomplete and biased impressions, I might come back and update the review if I find anything significant.

HASH(0x9234c708) von 5 Sternen The text we've needed 16. März 2010
Von wiredweird - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
It turns out that cryptography is the least of the issues in cryptographic systems. Good codes are available in good implementations all over the place (one reason the authors warn against implementing your own, since good implementations are very hard). But, as the authors say in their introductory chapter, "Cryptography by itself is fairly useless." They liken strong codes in a weak system to a bank-vault door on a tent. This book provides a first lesson in pouring some concrete into the walls behind that door.

Phrased as a text for a one semester graduate or advanced undergrad class, this highly readable text covers a range of basics - the first and most pervasive being the professional paranoia needed to actively seek out ways to defeat your own systems. The authors cover things you might expect in a crypto course, including ciphers, message digests, key exchange, and a smattering of mathematical basics. There's less of the real crypto material than you might think, however. I mean, what good is the unbreakable code when the bad guy with a root kit can read your passwords from the paging file or /dev/kmem? Instead, this book stands out for things like wiping secrets from memory as fast as you can - if you can, if language design or the physics of computer memory even make it possible. Even things like random numbers and the system clock come under careful scrutiny and analysis of their own. The reader who goes through this book cover to cover comes away with a solid appreciation of the hardware, software, and social issues involved in creating truly secure systems.

But, as the authors take pains to state, this is only an introduction. As happened with Schneier's "Applied Cryptography", it could become "... notorious for the systems that [readers] then designed and implemented on their own" after reading it. Serious cryptographic systems require specialized skills, skills that only a handful of people worldwide have. Since the authors observe that "We don't actually know how to create secure code," it's arguable that no one is qualified. But, to get even as good as the experts are today, a student has to start somewhere. This introductory text gets that student off to that start.

HASH(0x924b5150) von 5 Sternen Much needed update to Applied Cryptography 1. Dezember 2010
Von Ben Rothke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Good cryptography can ensure that your data is readable only to authorized parties. The danger of bad cryptography is a false sense of data security. The line between the two is exceptionally thin, and the difference between the two is spelled out in great detail in this text.

The first edition of coauthor Bruce Schneier's Applied Cryptography came out in 1994. What was revolutionary then, and launched a new generation of security mavens, is now obsolete in many parts. Cryptography Engineering is a much-needed update. While not as detailed as the former work, and with significantly fewer code examples, the new text is still a valuable resource for anyone who wants to come up to speed on the essentials of modern cryptography.

The book covers the major uses of cryptography today, namely messaging security and the other fundamental areas including key management, block ciph­ers, block modes, hash functions, encryption modes, message authentication codes, implementation issues, negotiation protocols, and much more.

The three authors bring many decades of unique experience on the topic to the book. Their goal is to get the reader to think like a cryptographer, and the book does a great job of that. It is rich in real-world examples, and each chapter ends with a number of exercises to take the theoretical ideas and put them into practice.

While billed as an introductory text on the subject, Cryptography Engineering is not for the fainthearted. Anyone intrigued by the topic and with the time to dedicate to the matter will find the book worth their while.

HASH(0x9236b6a8) von 5 Sternen Nice intro for non-cryptographists 31. März 2010
Von L. Andersen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book gives you a nice introduction to modern cryptography including message authentication, public key infrastructure and hashing algorithms. It does not delve too much in unimportant details, but gives an overview of the common pitfalls and the state of the art software available.

The book contains exercises at the end of each chapter which makes the book suitable for self teaching. Do not expect to be able to implement your own safe cryptographic algorithms simply by reading this book but learn some kind of professional paranoia and an idea of just how difficult it is to write safe code today.

I am not a professional programmer myself or a cryptographic engineer, but I did enjoy the book very much since it was able to keep me up to speed with the newest technology. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone interested in an overview of cryptography, but beware that some mathematical background is required (not more than high school stuff).

HASH(0x9236bc9c) von 5 Sternen Best treatment of the subject I've found 7. Juli 2011
Von Robert H. Stine Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
"Cryptography Engineering," by Ferguson, Schneier, and Kohno, is a stellar introduction to the theory and practice of software security. The authors hit the sweet spot between rigor and clarity and give the clearest accounts that I've ever read of many tough subjects, including:

* Cryptographic Hashing (MD5, SHA-2, and friends)
* Cryptographic pseudo-random number generation
* Block Ciphers
* Diffie/Hellman Key Exchange
* The Chinese Remainder Theorem
* Kerberos

But their aims are bigger than to acquaint us with buzzwords - they strive to inculcate the reader with the aims and mind-set of security engineering. They also offer penetrating observations on differences between the theory and practice of security, and the pitfalls of the standardization process.

All of this is packaged into a well-written, engaging book. I highly recommend it to anyone writing software, managing a software project, or just wondering what's going on in the cyber-wars.
