The book contains quite a good introduction to Cryptography. I was really impressed by its easy-to-read introduction to Quantum Cryptography, which seems to be a topic on which many other books struggle with providing a good explanation. Despite its clarity, the low quality of the exercises at the end of the chapters illustrate clearly the fact that the author did not put much effort or time into crafting good questions. This is really unfortunate since textbooks like these are supposed to help students learn more about the topic and the only way that could happen in a mathematical field like this is when they have well-designed questions to attempt solving.

If you just need an easy-to-read-through introduction to Cryptography, this book is a pretty good choice. If you want more exercises to sharpen your skills or understanding, this book is not for you.

Great read

The Book was in excellent condition.

However, I wish it arrived sooner.

This wonderful book lies between the layman's approach of "The Code Book" and "Applied Cryptography: Protocols, Algorithms, and Source Code in C", which takes an algorithmic approach to cryptography but glosses over the mathematical details. It is great for people who already understand the use of various cryptographic algorithms as depicted in "The Code Book", but want to understand the underpinning mathematics before they implement cryptography in code. It is the best of the applied math books on the subject, since it manages to explain the mathematics behind cryptography without getting bogged down in proofs. If cryptographic algorithms and implementations are your business, all three books are essential reading.

This book is a college level mathematics text that does a pretty good job of explaining the mathematics involved without assuming a lot in the way of background, but a preliminary course in abstract algebra would certainly be helpful. If I have any criticism of the book it is that there is a scarcity of actual numerical examples versus the multitude of unsolved exercises left to the student. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the mathematics of cryptography.

NOTE: A second edition of this book is due in February 2007. Preliminary information shows it to be 100 pages longer than this edition. Thus, if you have to buy the first edition now, you might want to get a used one and demand a lower price due to the limited lifespan this edition has.

This is a math book. It tells you cryptography-related abstract algebra, number theory, etc. The good thing is it doesn't assume you have much math background.
On the other hand, it has a lot of errors. Some are just typos, some not. Personally, I think if a math book has a single math error (wrong lemma, incorrect logic, ...), it is not a qualified math book. Unfortunately, this book has more than one.
The reason I still give it four stars is that I like its approach. Without math, cryptography is not cryptography. If you don't have enough math background, this book really helps you get started. There are simply not many choices on the market of this kind. After reading this, you can go to more rigorous, advanced ones, such as Koblitz's series. An alternative (more rigorous, less abstract algebra) is Bauer's. All Koblitz's and Bauer's are excellent.

I took this course at the U of Minn (where the author is a professor). He has a reputation of being a good professor and a good guy (and I have no reason to doubt it). Unfortunately, his book is very hard to understand. While packed chock full of information, it is written in a **very, very** dense style. It makes a lot of assumptions about your prior knowledge and there are few examples to illustrate the theory. While this may be OK for a grad student in math (or even a bright senior), it is definitely not sufficient for a non-math major and most undergrads.

Other than a few 1st edition errors and too small of an anwer key, the book is definitely worth the money. It has a very down-to-earth style which is great if you're using the book on your own like me. I'm using this book for the Siemman's Westinghouse Scholarship Competition, and I think it is a great book for anyone interested in Cryptology, whether they like math or not.
Very good book. His explanation is very clear.
I recommand to anyone who wants to learn cryptology.
I think computer scientist will get the most benefits from
this book.
