cryptographyCryptography Decrypted is a book which introduces the basic of cryptography. It is an easy-to-use reference for reviewing key cryptographic terminology and instructive historical information. You do not need to have a background in cryptography before reading this book. You will not need technical and mathematical skills as well. This book is designed for anybody who is interested in understanding what cryptology is about. Thus, as long as you can read, you are sure to understand what is written in the book.


For some of the year 2 or 3 students who are from SIT, I believe that some of you will be going through IT security and Management this semester. In this module, you sure will learn what’s symmetric and asymmetric, you also will learn about the hash function, public key, private key, digital certificates, etc. If you are not able to understand what the topics, you will need this book. In it, you will find an explanation of all the things that I have mentioned above. I believe that you will be able to gain a better understanding after you finish reading the chapters by combining figures and examples.


This book is quite interesting and will let the readers gain understanding about cryptography. If you are interesting in creating secret codes, decrypting codes or to find out what other ways people are using to protect their data, this will be the book to read. I ensure you that you will be able to gain a lot of knowledge after you finish the book.
