Handbook of Applied Cryptography is one of the best, most classical cryptography books, its three authors are all the internationally well-known cryptographers and active cryptography researchers. This book contains 15 chapters (780 pages), covers all the major achievements in the development of cryptography in recent 20 years.

Apart from the content that many cryptography books usually talk about, Handbook of Applied Cryptography provides the overview of cryptography first, and then rich cryptography technology details (including more than 200 algorithms and protocols, 200+ chart, 1000+ definitions, facts, examples, notes and comments). In addition, at the end of this book it also lists more than 1200 main articles reference about cryptography.

Throughout the book, it was organized perfectly with clear statements, so very suitable for researchers and engineers working in the fields of cryptography, computing, communication, mathematics and so on. It can be used as reference book or textbook.
