Item description for Probabilistic and Statistical Methods in Cryptology: An Introduction by Selected Topics (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) by Daniel Neuenschwander...
Cryptology nowadays is one of the most important areas of applied mathematics, building on deep results and methods from various areas of mathematics. This text is devoted to the study of stochastic aspects of cryptology.
Besides classical topics from cryptology, the author presents chapters on probabilistic prime number tests, factorization with quantum computers, random-number generators, pseudo-random-number generators, information theory, and the birthday paradox and meet-in-the-middle attack.
In the light of the vast literature on stochastic results relevant for cryptology, this book is intended as an invitation and introduction for students, researchers, and practitioners to probabilistic and statistical issues in cryptology.

A book of applied mathematics in cryptography Aug 6, 2008
I found the material included in this book to be an interesting collection of topics of applied mathematics in the area of cryptography. The book contains an admirable discussion of the stochastic views of cryptography. The material is by no means at the cutting edge of technology. However, it provides an adequate background for the novice reader in this important area of research. For me, the most interesting chapters were those describing information theory, tests for pseudorandom number generators, cryptanalysis, semantic security and birthday attack. I would urge that more attention to details and typographical errors is to be considered for future prints. As an example; the word "und" on page 78 seventh line!
