A Brief Introduction to Modern Cryptography

Part of the Signals and Communication Technology book series (SCT)

Abstract

In our Information Age, the need for protecting information is more pronounced than ever. Secure communication for the sensitive information is not only compelling for military or government institutions but also for the business sector and private individuals. The exchange of sensitive information over wired and/or wireless Internet, such as bank transactions, credit card numbers and telecommunication services are already common practices. As the world becomes more connected, the dependency on electronic services has become more pronounced. In order to protect valuable data in computer and communication systems from unauthorized disclosure and modification, reliable non-interceptable means for data storage and transmission must be adopted.
