Elliptic Curves: Number Theory and Cryptography, Second Edition

There are already a number of books about elliptic curves, but this new offering by Washington is definitely among the best of them. It gives a rigorous though relatively elementary development of the theory of elliptic curves, with emphasis on those aspects of the theory most relevant for an understanding of elliptic curve cryptography. … an excellent companion to the books of Silverman and Blake, Seroussi and Smart. It would be a f...

Mathematical Foundations of Public Key Cryptography

In Mathematical Foundations of Public Key Cryptography, the authors integrate the results of more than 20 years of research and teaching experience to help students bridge the gap between math theory and crypto practice. The book provides a theoretical structure of fundamental number theory and algebra knowledge supporting public-key cryptography. Rather than simply combining number theory and modern algebra, this textbook features t...

Learning Kali Linux

This book is great. Easy to understand and indepth explanations. I recommend you have prior computer knowledge or experience before reading this book (maybe read through the Linux in a Nutshell book first or CompTIA A+ certification guide) though the first chapter is based strictly on getting you started and up to datw with Linux. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants the learn Kali Linux.
