Shucks! No in depth discussion of elliptic curve crypto!!!,

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Handbook of Applied Cryptography (CRC Press Series on Discrete Mathematics and Its Application) (Gebundene Ausgabe)
A disappointing book for those who expected a discussion of elliptic curve cryptography. I bought this book "blind" (from Amazon without first perusing it in a library) and so did not know what to expect. The authors spend one paragraph on elliptic curves and state that an in-depth discussion of such is beyond the scope of the book. The book is however a very good one for discussing most of the other approaches to cryptography. A serious student/practioner of cryptography should have this on his/her shelf, but supplemented by some of the other books on elliptic curve cryptography. The authors could no doubt write a second edition of this book which includes a discussion of elliptic curve cryptography. The handbook would then become a "Bible" of cryptographic specialists. -From a worshipper of elliptic curves.
