McGraw-Hill Osborne Media | ISBN 0072263830 | November 17, 2021 | PDF | 696 pages | 28.6MB

You generally can't pick up knowledge of Cisco products casually, the way you can learn about Microsoft Windows, Unix, and other products that are more generally accessible. For this reason, Cisco: A Beginner's Guide performs a valuable service. It introduces internetworking novices to the language and fact base that underlie routers, switches, network protocols, and the rest of the Internet's infrastructure. True enough, no book can teach you everything you need to know about a subject as complex as internetworking, but this one does a great job of giving you the background you need to perform well in a class or do hands-on experiments intelligently.

Algebraic Aspects of the Advanced Encryption Standard

Algebraic Aspects of the Advanced Encryption Standard (Advances in Information Security) by Carlos Cid (Author), Sean Murphy (Author), Matthew Robshaw (Author)
Publisher: Springer; 1 edition (September 6, 2021) | ISBN-10: 0387243631 | PDF | 6 Mb | 164 pages

The Belgian block cipher Rijndael was chosen in 2000 by the U.S. government's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to be the successor to the Data Encryption Standard. Rijndael was subsequently standardized as the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), which is potentially the world's most important block cipher. In 2002, some new analytical techniques were suggested that may have a dramatic effect on the security of the AES. Existing analytical techniques for block ciphers depend heavily on a statistical approach, whereas these new techniques are algebraic in nature.

Mark D. Spivey, «Practical Hacking Techniques and Countermeasures»
AUERBACH | ISBN 0849370574 | November 2, 2021 | PDF | 737 pages | 70.2 MB

Practical Hacking Techniques and Countermeasures examines computer security from the hacker's perspective, demonstrating how a computer system can be successfully attacked and compromised. This book shows how an attack is conceptualized, formulated and performed. With the VMware Workstation software package available on the accompanying CD, it uses virtual computers to illustrate how an attack is executed, including the script, compilation, and results. It offers examples of attacks on Windows and Linux. It also covers such topics as footprinting, scanning, sniffing, passwords, and other attack tools. This text provides valuable information for constructing a system to defend against attacks.

Cryptography in C and C++ by Michael Welschenbach, David Kramer
Apress | 19 March, 2001 | ISBN: 189311595X | CHM | 432 pages | 3.57 MB

Cryptography in C and C++ mainly focuses on the practical aspects involved in implementing public key cryptography methods, such as the RSA algorithm that was recently released from patent protection. It also gives both a technical overview and an implementation of the Rijndael algorithm that was selected as the Advanced Encryption Standard by the U.S. government. Author Michael Welschenbach avoids complexities by explaining cryptography and its mathematical basis in terms a programmer can easily understand.

Encyclopedia of Cryptology by David E. Newton
ABC-Clio Inc | ISBN 0874367727 | 1997 Year | 330 Pages | CHM | 2,3 Mb

Grade 9 UpAA thorough introduction to the history of cryptology that explains the fundamental concepts of this science. Newton provides concise, easy-to-read definitions of terms, topics, and personalities pertinent to the history of encoded messages. Entries are arranged alphabetically and often include cross-references and suggestions for further reading. Black-and-white illustrations, photographs, and charts assist in the comprehension of terms. While there are many books aimed at certain aspects of this topic, none of them do as good a job of presenting a comprehensive yet accessible overview of secret-message writing throughout ancient and modern times.
