Foundations of Cryptography, Volume 1: Basic Techniques

Oded Goldreich


Cryptography is worried with the conceptualization, definition and building of computing platforms that handle defense matters. This publication provides a rigorous and systematic remedy of the foundational matters: defining cryptographic initiatives and fixing new cryptographic difficulties utilizing current instruments. It makes a speciality of the elemental mathematical instruments: computational trouble (one-way functions), pseudorandomness and zero-knowledge proofs. instead of describing ad-hoc techniques, this booklet emphasizes the explanation of primary suggestions and the demonstration of the feasibility of fixing cryptographic difficulties. it truly is appropriate to be used in a graduate path on cryptography and as a reference ebook for specialists.
