Practical Cryptography in Python
Develop a greater intuition for the proper use of cryptography. This book teaches the basics of writing cryptographic algorithms in Python demystifies cryptographic internals, and demonstrates common ways cryptography is used incorrectly.
Cryptography is the lifeblood of the digital world's security infrastructure. From governments around the world to the average consumer, most communications are protected in some form or another by cryptography. These days, even Google searches are encrypted. Despite its ubiquity, cryptography is easy to misconfigure, misuse, and misunderstand.
Developers building cryptographic operations into their applications are not typically experts in the subject, and may not fully grasp the implication of different algorithms, modes, and other parameters. The concepts in this book are largely taught by example, including incorrect uses of cryptography and how "bad" cryptography can be broken. By digging into the guts of cryptography, you can experi ...
