About the Authors
  • This volume details what every computer scientist ought to know about cryptographic systems, security protocols, and secure information flow in programs. Highlights include discussions of the new advanced encryption standard "Rijndael"; an optimal public-key encryption using RSA which turns "textbook RSA" into a practical implementation; standard security models for information flow in computer programs or human organizations; and moral, legal, and political issues. Another novel feature is the presentation of a formal model-checking tool for specifying and debugging security protocols. A supporting web site contains Java source code for the programs featured plus links to other sites.

    • Full description of the new Advanced Encryption Standard Rijndael, announced as the winner of the NIST AES competition on October 10, 2000
    • Exposition of a formal tool for modeling and analyzing security protocols plus two analyses for secure information flow in programs
    • A chapter on optimal public-key encryption with RSA, a realistic implementation of RSA that is likely to be part of PKCS#1 version 2

    "The book can be a good text book at undergraduate level, and graduate level. It has a large number of exercises at the end of sections, and many subsections. This makes the textbook useful for the students...The book is well written to be suitable for self study. The researchers and professionals in the area of security may find the book useful as a reference."
