Cryptography and Network Security Principles and Practice – William Stallings – 7th Edition


and , Seventh Edition, introduces the reader to the compelling and evolving field of cryptography and network security. In an age of viruses and hackers, eavesdropping, and electronic fraud on a global scale, security is paramount. The purpose of this is to provide a practical survey of both the principles and of cryptography and network security. In the first part of the book, the basic issues to be addressed by a network security capability are explored by providing a tutorial and survey of cryptography and network security . The latter part of the book deals with the practice of network security: practical that have been implemented and are in use to provide network security.

The Seventh Edition streamlines subject matter with new and updated material — including Sage, one of the most important features of the book. Sage is an open-source, multiplatform, freeware package that implements a very powerful, flexible, and easily learned mathematics and algebra system. It provides hands-on experience with cryptographic algorithms and supporting homework assignments. With Sage, the reader learns a powerful tool that can be used for virtually any mathematical application. The book also provides an unparalleled degree of support for the reader to ensure a successful learning experience.
