Cryptography, Information Theory, and Error-Correction: A Handbook for the 21st Century
Bruen, Aiden A., Forcinito, Mario A., M. McQuillan, James
A rich examination of the technologies supporting secure digital information transfers from a respected leader in the field
As technology continues to advance, Cryptography, Information Theory, and Error-Correction: A Handbook for the Twenty-First Century is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in the secure exchange of financial information. Identity theft, cybercrime, and other security issues have taken center stage as information becomes easier to access. Three disciplines offer solutions to these digital challenges: cryptography, information theory, and error-correction, all of which are addressed in this book.
This book is geared toward a broad audience of professionals working at financial institutions, law firms, and governments who need updated information to make critical decisions. The book s discussions will also be of interest to those involved in blockchains as well as those working in companies developing and applying security for new products, like self-driving cars. The second edition is also an authoritative overview for IT professionals, statisticians, mathematicians, computer scientists, electrical engineers, and entrepreneurs.
It is an excellent reference for both graduate and undergraduate students of mathematics, computer science, cybersecurity, and engineering. Six new chapters cover current topics like Internet of Things security, new identities in information theory, blockchains, cryptocurrency, compression, and cloud computing and storage. Increased security and applicable research in elliptic curve cryptography are also featured. The book also:
Cryptography, Information Theory, and Error-Correction guides readers in their understanding of reliable tools that can be used to store or transmit digital information safely.
