The Principles and Practice of Cryptography and Network Security

Stallings’ Cryptography and Network Security, Seventh Edition, introduces the reader to the compelling and evolving field of cryptography and network security. In an age of viruses and hackers, electronic eavesdropping, and electronic fraud on a global scale, security is paramount. The purpose of this book is to provide a practical survey of both the principles and practice 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 technology. The latter part of the book deals with the practice of network security: practical applications 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 computer 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.

Review Text

  • By Cody A LeClair on August 11, 2016

    I initially sampled eBook to make sure there was no glaring issues in the text as what tends to happen in lazy text to digital translation. I noticed the access left understandably blank. Purchased at the lower digital price assuming that would display once fully downloaded. Looked on the page after and still blank. No indication anywhere to an added page containing the code to additional sources. Cost of access code through Pearson's brings total cost up to be comparable to physical version in my college bookstore, which I know has the code. Immediately returned so I can purchase a COMPLETE book.

    I disliked this book immensely (By the way, I noticed some reviews seem to be for different textbooks. My review is for the Operating Systems book). I found several instances of plagiarism (no citations or credit given to original source) including these two examples:Textbook:A resource that a subsystem needs exclusive access to at all times. In this class of resources, no sharing policy is needed since only a single component ever requires use of the resource. Examples of dedicated abstractions include interrupts and counters (Stallings 585).Plagiarized from:An abstraction is dedicated if it is a resource which a subsystem needs exclusive access to at all times. In this class of resources, no sharing policy is needed since only a single component ever requires use of the resource. Examples of dedicated abstractions include interrupts and counters (Klues, Levis and Gay).Textbook:Every client of a virtualized resource interacts with it as if it were a dedicated resource, with all virtualized instances being multiplexed on top of a single underlying resource (Stallings 585).Plagiarized from:Every client of a virtualized resource interacts with it as if it were a dedicated resource, with all virtualized instances being multiplexed on top of a single underlying resource (Klues, Levis and Gay).Not only did the author plagiarize, he seemed to relish writing in a verbose manner. For example, this is his explanation of deadline criteria: "When process completion deadlines can be specified, the scheduling discipline should subordinate other goals to that of maximizing the percentage of deadlines met.” He couldn't just write that the maximum number of deadline should be met? This is typical, and it makes reading this textbook a chore.Works CitedKlues, Kevin, et al. "Resource Arbitration." Documentary. n.d. Web.Stallings, William.

    I have taught operating systems at the graduate level for the last 5 years. In other areas of computer science, I've been spoiled by classic textbooks (e.g. Aho, Sethi and Ullman's "Compilers: Principles Designs and Tools", aka "The Dragon Book" for compiler design, Hennessy and Patterson's "Computer Architecture a Quantitative Approach", etc.) Computer Operating systems is a mature field, yet no textbook reaches classic stature in Operating Systems. Previous editions of the textbook have had serious errata in the problem sets (it i embarrassing to assign unsolvable problems to students) I no longer use any problems from this book as a result.However, among Operating Systems textbooks, there are primarily 2 categories, those with example code (e.g. Tannenbaums) and survey books. This is a survey book (sometimes called theoretical, but not in the Automata Theory or Algorithms sense). It has some overview of design principles and some analysis, which makes it better than the others I've seen, but still leaves a bit to be desired, I feel it is still a bit too qualitative. I'd like to see more back of the envelope analysis (like say Patterson and Hennessy's book). The section on scheduling is pretty good, with some nice analysis, and the queueing theory section is useful for first year grads and upper division undergrads. Still, I need to assign quite a bit of additional literature.
