Book Description
Cryptography is concerned with the conceptualization, definition and construction of computing systems that address security concerns. The design of cryptographic systems must be based on firm foundations.
This book focuses on the basic mathematical tools needed for for cryptographic design: computational difficulty (oneway functions), pseudorandomness and zeroknowledge proofs. The emphasis is on the clarification of fundamental concepts, and on demonstrating the feasibility of solving several central cryptographic problems.
The book is suitable for use in a graduate course on cryptography and as a reference book for experts. The author assumes basic familiarity with the design and analysis of algorithms; some knowledge of complexity theory and probability is also useful.
About the Authors Oded Goldreich is a Professor of Computer Science at the Weizmann Institute of Science and an Incumbent of the Meyer W. Weisgal Professorial Chair. He is an editor for the SIAM Journal on Computing, the Journal of Cryptology, and Computational Complexity, and previously authored the books Modern Cryptography, Probabilistic Proofs and Pseudorandomness, Computational Complexity: A Conceptual Perspective, and the twovolume work Foundations of Cryptography.

Handbook of Applied Cryptography (Alfred J. Menezes, et al)
This book is an incredible achievement. If you want to check what problems there were with a proposed system, determine how the variations on a particular algorithm developed, see what research preceded and followed an idea, go to the Handbook.

Modern Cryptography Volume 1: A Classical Introduction
This book systematically explores the statistical characteristics of cryptographic systems, the computational complexity theory of cryptographic algorithms and the mathematical principles behind various encryption and decryption algorithms.

Modern Cryptography Volume 2: PostQuantum Cryptography
This open access book covers the most cuttingedge and hot research topics and fields of postquantum cryptography. The main purpose of this book is to focus on the computational complexity theory of lattice ciphers.

Practical Cryptography for Developers (Svetlin Nakov)
A modern practical book about cryptography for developers with code examples, covering core concepts, along with crypto libraries and developer tools, with a lots of code examples in Python and other languages.

The Joy of Cryptography (Mike Rosulek)
The definitive introduction to all major areas of cryptography: message security, key negotiation, and key management, but in a way that is more accessible than what is "traditional" in crypto. All security definitions are written in a "gamebased" style.

Cryptography: An Introduction, 3rd Edition (Nigel Smart)
This book 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.

A Graduate Course in Applied Cryptography (Dan Boneh, et al)
This book is about mathematical modeling and proofs to show that a particular cryptosystem satisfies the security properties attributed to it: constructing practical cryptosystems for which we can argue security under plausible assumptions.

Fundamentals of Cryptology: A Professional Reference (H. Tilborg)
This is a thoroughly written wonderful book on cryptography! This excellent book is warmly recommended for mathematicians, computer scientists, for professors and students, and, as a reference book, for researchers in the area of cryptography.

Introduction to Modern Cryptography (Mihir Bellare, et al.)
This book introduces the core principles of modern cryptography, with an emphasis on formal definitions, clear assumptions, and rigorous proofs of security. It also presents design principles for widely used stream ciphers and block ciphers.

Cracking Codes with Python: Building and Breaking Ciphers
Learn how to program in Python while making and breaking ciphers  algorithms used to create and send secret messages! You'll begin with simple programs for the reverse and Caesar ciphers and then work your way up to public key cryptography, etc.

Open Workbook of Cryptology: Python Projects
This book uses Python and some standard cryptographic libraries in Python to explore these cryptological ideas. It should be accessible to students with a solid basic comfort level with Python – but could also be used as a way to solidify Python.
