Название: RSA Security's Official Guide to Cryptography Автор: Steve Burnett and Stephen Paine Издательство: McGraw-Hill Education Год: 2001 Формат: PDF Размер: 10 Мб Язык: английский / English
Learn how cryptography works--from the leading authority in e-security. Cryptography is one of the smartest ways to protect the information on your network and reduce the risk of security breaches and attacks from hackers. And because implementing cryptography is a complex process, you need the practical advice and proven techniques contained inside this official guide. Written by insiders at RSA Security, this expert resource explains the differences between symmetric-key and public-key cryptography, how PKI and X.509 affect security, how the RSA algorithm works within protocols, and much more. You’ll also read actual case-studies detailing different types of security vulnerabilities and what types of cryptography applications would prevent attacks.
This book will show you how to:
Distinguish different types of symmetric-key encryption algorithms and know where each is best used Find out how password-based encryption works Communicate safely over unsecure channels using public-key technology Use public-key technology for authentication and non-repudiation Get details on current PKI standards and technology--including vendor information Understand X.509 certificates and directory structures Get an operational overview of widely-used protocols--including IPSec, SSL, and SET Recognize how corporations use cryptography to improve security through real-world case studies View cryptography from different perspectives--corporations, developers, and users Effectively use digital signatures and hardware solutions--smart cards, tokens, key storage devices, and more
Improve security and protect your company's information with the most authoritative guide to cryptography available.
