Practical Cryptography With Go
by Kyle Isom
Publisher: Leanpub 2014
This is an introduction to cryptography for programmers; it doesn't aim to teach the theory, but rather to guide you in your attempt to understand how to use cryptography to secure your services. We'll talk about where it fits into the big picture, and illustrate it using the Go programming language.

We present the principles behind quantum key distribution and discuss a few well-known QKD protocols. We focus more on the implementation of QKD protocols rather than security analysis. Another topic covered here is the security of QKD systems.

The book gives the mathematical underpinnings for cryptography; this includes one-way functions, pseudorandom generators, and zero-knowledge proofs. Throughout, definitions are complete and detailed; proofs are rigorous and given in full.

The author is trying to find a middle ground, a gentle introduction to selected topics in cryptography without avoiding the mathematics. The material is aimed at undergraduate computer science students, but will be accessible to many others.
