After two decades of research and development, elliptic curve cryptography now has widespread exposure and acceptance. Industry, banking, and government standards are in place to facilitate extensive deployment of this efficient public-key mechanism. Anchored by a comprehensive treatment of the practical aspects of elliptic curve cryptography (ECC), this guide explains the basic mathematics, describes state-of-the-art implementation methods, and presents standardized protocols for public-key encryption, digital signatures, and key establishment. In addition, the book addresses some issues that arise in software and hardware implementation, as well as side-channel attacks and countermeasures. Readers receive the theoretical fundamentals as an underpinning for a wealth of practical and accessible knowledge about efficient application. Features & Benefits: * Breadth of coverage and unified, integrated approach to elliptic curve cryptosystems * Describes important industry and government protocols, such as the FIPS 186-2 standard from the U.S. National Institute for Standards and Technology * Provides full exposition on techniques for efficiently implementing finite-field and elliptic curve arithmetic * Distills complex mathematics and algorithms for easy understanding * Includes useful literature references, a list of algorithms, and appendices on sample parameters, ECC standards, and software tools This comprehensive, highly focused reference is a useful and indispensable resource for practitioners, professionals, or researchers in computer science, computer engineering, network design, and network data security.

Use the internet like a real spy. Untangling the Web is the National Security Agency's once-classified guide to finding information on the internet. From the basic to the advanced, this 650-page book offers a fascinating look at tricks the "real spies" use to uncover hidden (and not-so-hidden) information online. Chapters include: Google hacks Metasearch sites Custom search engines Maps & mapping Uncovering the invisible internet Beyond search engines: Specialized research tools Email lookups Finding people Researching companies A plain english guide to interworking Internet toolkits Finding ISPs Cybergeography Internet privacy and security ....and over a hundred more chapters. This quote from the authors hints at the investigative power of the techniques this book teaches: Nothing I am going to describe to you is illegal, nor does it in any way involve accessing unauthorized data, [...but] involves using publicly available search engines to access publicly available information that almost certainly was not intended for public distribution. From search strings that will reveal secret documents from South Africa ( filetype: xls site: za confidential ) to tracking down tables of Russian passwords ( filetype: xls site: ru login ), this is both an instructive and voyeuristic look at how the most powerful spy agency in the world uses Google.

This book is devoted to efficient pairing computations and implementations, useful tools for cryptographers working on topics like identity-based cryptography and the simplification of existing protocols like signature schemes. As well as exploring the basic mathematical background of finite fields and elliptic curves, Guide to Pairing-Based Cryptography offers an overview of the most recent developments in optimizations for pairing implementation. Each chapter includes a presentation of the problem it discusses, the mathematical formulation, a discussion of implementation issues, solutions accompanied by code or pseudocode, several numerical results, and references to further reading and notes. Intended as a self-contained handbook, this book is an invaluable resource for computer scientists, applied mathematicians and security professionals interested in cryptography.

Modern computer systems depend on the confidential exchange of data to facilitate daily life. Whether one is transferring money between countries, creating a virtual private network connection, of simply wishing to communicate using peer-to-peer technologies, encryption provides the basis for the secure exchange of data. Elliptic-curve cryptography (ECC) provides equivalent security to traditional Galois field-based encryption algorithms, while simultaneously requiring vastly smaller key sizes, speeding processing, establishment, and reducing computing overhead.Elliptic-curves may be used for key agreement and negotiation, digital signing, and may also underly foundations necessary for payload encryption and transport.Elliptic-Curve Cryptography delves into the mathematics and nuances necessary to understand modern key-based systems in operating systems such as Microsoft Windows, Linux, and Unix, as well as hardware platforms such as routers, VPN concentrators and complex firewall appliances. Included within this volume are discussions focusing on:¿Elliptic Curve Diffie Hellman¿National Security Agency Suite B¿Elliptic Curve Integrated Encryption Scheme¿Elliptic Curve Digital Signatures¿Elliptic Curve Certificate ServicesElliptic-Curve Cryptography is aimed for the academic researcher or cybersecurity professional who requires a detailed understanding of key management within ECC technology and the underlying mathematics involved.

Dieses umfassende Einführungs- und Übersichtswerk zur Kryptografie beschreibt eine große Zahl von Verschlüsselungs-, Signatur und Hash-Verfahren in anschaulicher Form, ohne unnötig tief in die Mathematik einzusteigen. Hierbei kommen auch viele Methoden zur Sprache, die bisher kaum in anderen Kryptografiebüchern zu finden sind. Auf dieser breiten Basis geht das Buch auf viele spezielle Themen ein: Kryptografische Protokolle, Implementierungsfragen, Sicherheits-Evaluierungen, Seitenkanalangriffe, Malware-Angriffe, Anwenderakzeptanz, Schlüsselmanagement, Smartcards, Biometrie, Trusted Computing und vieles mehr werden ausführlich behandelt. Auch spezielle Kryptografieanwendungen wie Digital Rights Management kommen nicht zu kurz. Besondere Schwerpunkte bilden zudem die Themen Public-Key-Infrastrukturen (PKI) und kryptografische Netzwerkprotokolle (WEP, SSL, IPsec, S/MIME, DNSSEC und zahlreiche andere). Die Fülle an anschaulich beschriebenen Themen macht das Buch zu einem Muss für jeden, der einen Einstieg in die Kryptografie oder eine hochwertige Übersicht sucht. Der Autor ist ein anerkannter Krypto-Experte mit langjähriger Berufserfahrung und ein erfolgreicher Journalist. Er versteht es, Fachwissen spannend und anschaulich zu vermitteln. Die Neuauflage ist aktualisiert und geht auf neueste Standards, Verfahren sowie Protokolle ein. »Eines der umfangreichsten, verständlichsten und am besten geschriebenen Kryptografie-Bücher der Gegenwart.« David Kahn, US-Schriftsteller und Kryptografie-Historiker
