    Good and enjoyable reading,

  • By Steve on 1 June 2012

    This is a well reounded book and can be used as a great reference to look up particular detail when you are implementing / choosing cryptographic primitives. It also provides detail on weaknesses of particular modes of operation and cautionary information where you need it most.Highly recommended book which is easy to read and very refreshing.

  • By R Sharp on 15 December 2014

    Very good guide to cryptography and cryptographic security at the systems level with enough detail to fully appreciate what is involved. This appears to have been the authors' aim and for me, they have fully delivered.

  • By Jarl Ostensen on 18 February 2015

    This book is excellent, quite simply. Pragmatic and to the point. An excellent companion for anyone working with real-world implementations and uses of cryptography.

  • By M. V. Volgin on 29 September 2011

    pretty much everything i needed to know, with very few less relevant topics such as in-depth explanation of algorithmsprobably the best book to get started with

  • By Niko on 17 May 2010

    This is a must have book for people that wants to understand cryptography and how to implement cryptography. It's also a good reference book for IT professionals the work with cryptography.

    I've given this book 3 stars which may be a bit unfair because the content so far I'd pretty good. What I really don't like is trying to read and understand a complex topic on the Kindle because I find that I need to flick backwards & forwards to re-visit sections which I find particularly difficult to do on the Kindle so I might just have to invest in the hard copy instead.
