More About This Title Modern Cryptanalysis: Techniques for Advanced Code Breaking


As an instructor at the University of Tulsa, Christopher Swenson could find no relevant text for teaching modern cryptanalysis?so he wrote his own. This is the first book that brings the study of cryptanalysis into the 21st century. Swenson provides a foundation in traditional cryptanalysis, examines ciphers based on number theory, explores block ciphers, and teaches the basis of all modern cryptanalysis: linear and differential cryptanalysis. This time-honored weapon of warfare has become a key piece of artillery in the battle for information security.


CHRISTOPHER SWENSON is a PhD candidate and a Department of Defense employee working in vulnerability analysis. He has received a coveted national scholarship award from the Information Assurance Scholarship Program and belongs to the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR) as well as the American Mathematical Society (AMS).
