Hackers have uncovered the dark side of cryptography—thatdevice developed to defeat Trojan horses, viruses, password theft,and other cyber-crime. It’s called cryptovirology, the art ofturning the very methods designed to protect your data into a meansof subverting it. In this fascinating, disturbing volume, theexperts who first identified cryptovirology show you exactly whatyou’re up against and how to fight back. They will take you inside the brilliant and devious mind of ahacker—as much an addict as the vacant-eyed denizen of thecrackhouse—so you can feel the rush and recognize youropponent’s power. Then, they will arm you for thecounterattack. This book reads like a futuristic fantasy, but be assured, thethreat is ominously real. Vigilance is essential, now. Understand the mechanics of computationally secure informationstealing Learn how non-zero sum Game Theory is used to developsurvivable malware Discover how hackers use public key cryptography to mountextortion attacks Recognize and combat the danger of kleptographic attacks onsmart-card devices Build a strong arsenal against a cryptovirology attack

This book provides the basic theory, techniques, and algorithms of modern cryptography that are applicable to network and cyberspace security. It consists of the following nine main chapters: Chapter 1 provides the basic concepts and ideas of cyberspace and cyberspace security, Chapters 2 and 3 provide an introduction to mathematical and computational preliminaries, respectively. Chapters 4 discusses the basic ideas and system of secret-key cryptography, whereas Chapters 5, 6, and 7 discuss the basic ideas and systems of public-key cryptography based on integer factorization, discrete logarithms, and elliptic curves, respectively. Quantum-safe cryptography is presented in Chapter 8 and offensive cryptography, particularly cryptovirology, is covered in Chapter 9. This book can be used as a secondary text for final-year undergraduate students and first-year postgraduate students for courses in Computer, Network, and Cyberspace Security. Researchers and practitioners working in cyberspace security and network security will also find this book useful as a reference.

THE LEGACY... First introduced in 1995, Cryptography: Theory and Practice garnered enormous praise and popularity, and soon became the standard textbook for cryptography courses around the world. The second edition was equally embraced, and enjoys status as a perennial bestseller. Now in its third edition, this authoritative text continues to provide a solid foundation for future breakthroughs in cryptography. WHY A THIRD EDITION? The art and science of cryptography has been evolving for thousands of years. Now, with unprecedented amounts of information circling the globe, we must be prepared to face new threats and employ new encryption schemes on an ongoing basis. This edition updates relevant chapters with the latest advances and includes seven additional chapters covering: Pseudorandom bit generation in cryptography Entity authentication, including schemes built from primitives and special purpose "zero-knowledge" schemes Key establishment including key distribution and protocols for key agreement, both with a greater emphasis on security models and proofs Public key infrastructure, including identity-based cryptography Secret sharing schemes Multicast security, including broadcast encryption and copyright protection THE RESULT... Providing mathematical background in a "just-in-time" fashion, informal descriptions of cryptosystems along with more precise pseudocode, and a host of numerical examples and exercises, Cryptography: Theory and Practice, Third Edition offers comprehensive, in-depth treatment of the methods and protocols that are vital to safeguarding the mind-boggling amount of information circulating around the world.

Cryptography is a vital technology that underpins the security of information in computer networks. This book presents a comprehensive introduction to the role that cryptography plays in providing information security for everyday technologies such as the Internet, mobile phones, Wi-Fi networks, payment cards, Tor, and Bitcoin. This book is intended to be introductory, self-contained, and widely accessible. It is suitable as a first read on cryptography. Almost no prior knowledge of mathematics is required since the book deliberately avoids the details of the mathematics techniques underpinning cryptographic mechanisms. Instead our focus will be on what a normal user or practitioner of information security needs to know about cryptography in order to understand the design and use of everyday cryptographic applications. By focusing on the fundamental principles of modern cryptography rather than the technical details of current cryptographic technology, the main part this book is relatively timeless, and illustrates the application of these principles by considering a number of contemporary applications of cryptography. Following the revelations of former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, the book considers the wider societal impact of use of cryptography and strategies for addressing this. A reader of this book will not only be able to understand the everyday use of cryptography, but also be able to interpret future developments in this fascinating and crucially important area of technology.

This Festschrift volume is published in honor of David Kahn and is the outcome of a Fest held in Luxembourg in 2010 on the occasion of David Kahn’s 80th birthday. The title of this books leans on the title of a serious history of cryptology named “The Codebreakers”, written by David Kahn and published in 1967. This book contains 35 talks dealing with cryptography as a whole. They are organized in topical section named: history; technology – past, present, future; efficient cryptographic implementations; treachery and perfidy; information security; cryptanalysis; side-channel attacks; randomness embedded system security; public-key cryptography; and models and protocols.

The 6th Conference on Security and Cryptography for Networks (SCN 2008) was held in Amal?, Italy, on September 10–12, 2008. The ?rst four editions of the conference where held in Amal?, while, two years ago, the ?fth edition was held in the nearby Maiori. This year we moved back to the traditional location. Security and privacy are increasing concerns in computer networks such as the Internet. The availability of fast, reliable, and cheap electronic communi- tion o?ers the opportunity to perform, electronically and in a distributed way, a wide range of transactions of a most diverse nature. The conference brought together researchersin the ?elds of cryptographyand securityin communication networkswith the goalof fostering cooperationand exchangeof ideas. The main topics of the conference this year included anonymity, implementations, auth- tication, symmetric-key cryptography, complexity-based cryptography, privacy, cryptanalysis, cryptographic protocols, digital signatures, public-key cryptog- phy, hash functions, identi?cation. The international Program Committee consisted of 24 members who are top experts in the conference ?elds. The PC received 71 submissions and selected 26 papers for presentation at the conference. These proceedings include the 26 accepted papers and the abstract of the invited talk by Shai Halevi.
