"The authors have succeeded in creating a highly valuable introduction to the subject of applied cryptography. I hope that it can serve as a guide for practitioners to build more secure systems based on cryptography, and as a stepping stone for future researchers to explore the exciting world of cryptography and its applications." (Bart Preneel, K.U.Leuven)
"The material is very well presented so it is clear to understand. The necessary amount of mathematics is used and complete yet simple examples are used by the authors to help the reader understand the topics. ... [The authors] appear to fully understand the concepts and follow a very good pedagogical process that helps the reader not only understand the different topics but motivate you to perform some of the exercises at the end of each chapter and browse some of the reference materials. I fully recommend this book to any software developer/designer working or considering working on a project that requires security." (John Canessa)
“The book presents a panoramic of modern Cryptography with a view to practical applications. … The book is well written, many examples and figures through it illustrate the theory and the book’s website offers links and supplementary information. The book also discusses the implementation in software and hardware of the main algorithms described.” (Juan Tena Ayuso, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1190, 2010)
