"Overall, this book provides a historical view of the essential work on the design and analysis of block ciphers. The book is well written and is appropriate for both beginners and experienced readers. Those who want more details about the rationale and philosophy behind block cipher design can use this book as an up-to-date reference." (Zheng Gong, ACM Computing Reviews, July 2012)
“‘The block cipher companion’ is a well written handbook, wholly recommended. An excellent choice of examples and informal language make this handbook an excellent choice for beginners, guiding the reader from simple cipher techniques and cryptanalysis towards more advanced ideas. … Professionals will find the book to be a systematic collection of ideas, and, in particular, a thorough bibliography and a short survey of block ciphers evolution.” (Jerzy Żurawiecki, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1243, 2012)
