Introduction to Cryptography

Sahadeo Padhye, Rajeev A. Sahu, Vishal Saraswat
July 31, 2018

Electronic communication and financial transactions have assumed massive proportions today. But they come with high risks. Achieving cyber security has become a top priority, and has become one of the most crucial areas of study and research in IT. This book introduces readers to perhaps the most...

Security without Obscurity: A Guide to Cryptographic Architectures

Jeff Stapleton
July 17, 2018

Information security has a major gap when cryptography is implemented. Cryptographic algorithms are well defined, key management schemes are well known, but the actual deployment is typically overlooked, ignored, or unknown. Cryptography is everywhere. Application and network architectures are...

Handbook of Image-based Security Techniques

Shivendra Shivani, Suneeta Agarwal, Jasjit S. Suri
May 22, 2018

This book focuses on image based security techniques, namely visual cryptography, watermarking, and steganography. This book is divided into four sections. The first section explores basic to advanced concepts of visual cryptography. The second section of the book covers digital image watermarking...
