Posted by Mike_L [send private reply] at June 11, 2003, 07:35:54 PM My parents gave me this excellent book called Applied Cryptography by Bruce Schneier (ISBN 0471117099). It has info about all kinds of codes, code breaking, and lots of stuff on computer cryptography. You can get the book at Amazon.com,
The author has a company that does network security stuff. He also puts out a monthly newsletter called the Crypto-Gram. The website is http://www.counterpane.com/

Posted by ItinitI [send private reply] at June 11, 2003, 09:46:19 PM There is also "Handbook of applied Cryptography" online,,, or you can get it as 1 PDF from KaZaA. It didnt read to far in it, so cant tell what its like.
Posted by CodeX [send private reply] at June 13, 2003, 08:44:46 AM The Handbook of applied Cryptography is excellent but deeply involved mathematically. I have the whole thing by chapter in pdf's, but i didn't really understand most of it because of my mathematical level. I have a printed copy of Applied Cryptography and found it was a great read and still had all the technical details i needed to implement the techniques in the book in programs i write.
