Pro Cryptography and Cryptanalysis with C++20: Creating and Programming Advanced Algorithms

English | 2021 | ISBN: 978-1484265857 | 486 Pages | PDF, EPUB | 25 MB


Develop strong skills and a passion for writing cryptography algorithms and security schemes/modules using C++ 20 and its new features. You will find the right methods of writing advanced cryptographic algorithms (such as, elliptic curve cryptography algorithms, lattice-based cryptography, searchable encryption, and homomorphic encryption), examine internal cryptographic mechanisms, and discover common ways in which the algorithms could be implemented and used correctly in practice.
The authors avoid the complexities of the mathematical background by explaining its mathematical basis in terms that a programmer can easily understand. They show how “bad” cryptography creeps in during implementation and what “good” cryptography should look like. They do so by showing and comparing the advantages and disadvantages based on processing time, execution time, and reliability.
