Item description for Algebraic Aspects of Cryptography (Algorithms and Computation in Mathematics) by Neal Koblitz...
This is a textbook for a course (or self-instruction) in cryptography with emphasis on algebraic methods. The first half of the book is a self-contained informal introduction to areas of algebra, number theory, and computer science that are used in cryptography. Most of the material in the second half - "hidden monomial" systems, combinatorial-algebraic systems, and hyperelliptic systems - has not previously appeared in monograph form. The appendix by Menezes, Wu, and Zuccherato gives an elementary treatment of hyperelliptic curves. This book is intended for graduate students, advanced undergraduates, and scientists working in various fields of data security.

Reviews - What do customers think about Algebraic Aspects of Cryptography (Algorithms and Computation in Mathematics)?
Excellent, but only if you have extensive knowledge of math Jun 28, 2004
The textbook is intended for students with extensive knowledge of number theory, field theory, and algebraic techniques. It is terse and runs through the material using the definition-lemma-proof-theorem-proof method, with almost no examples. For students without the aforementioned prerequisites, the book is almost impossible to understand.
The book can be great for students with the mathematical prerequisites and with sufficient mathematical maturity to understand elaborate definitions, theorems and proofs and who want to learn the material efficiently and quickly.
The beginning student is advised to look for other, more elementary textbooks.
The book contains many exercises with solutions at the end of the book.
Excelent May 25, 2000
It's a very good book about cryptography and all the "stuff" about it. Neal Koblick is one of the invertor on ECC, so he knows about he talks.
