Coding Theory and Cryptography
by David Joyner
Publisher: Springer 2000
Number of pages: 256
This book concerns elementary and advanced aspects of coding theory and cryptography. The coding theory contributions deal mostly with algebraic coding theory. Some of these papers are expository, whereas others are the result of original research. There are both, historical and mathematical papers on cryptography. Several of the contributions on cryptography describe the work done by the British and their allies during World War II to crack the German and Japanese ciphers.

These notes contain the central mathematical background needed for understanding modern data encryption methods, and introduce applications in cryptography and various protocols. The fledgling quantum cryptography is briefly introduced.

Multiple aspects of public-key cryptography are examined. The author covers the theory of provably secure public-key cryptography and the implementation of exponentiation and multi-exponentiation. An introduction to provable security is provided.

The viewpoint taken throughout these notes is to emphasize the theory of cryptography as it can be applied to practice. This is an approach that the authors have pursued in the research, and it seems to be a pedagogically desirable approach as well.

Nigel Smart's 'Cryptography' provides the rigorous detail required for advanced cryptographic studies, yet approaches the subject matter in an accessible style in order to gently guide new students through difficult mathematical topics.
