He has a Ph.D. in applied cryptography, and as a researcher he investigated the practical aspects of elliptic-curve-based cryptography and cryptanalysis. He has published extensively about his theoretical and industrial work through leading international conferences and journals, and he has taught many IT security and cryptography courses in industry.

Reviews

requires security." (John Canessa)

"The book presents a panoramic of modern Cryptography with a view to practical applications. ... The book is well written, many examples and figures through it illustrate the theory and the book's website offers links and supplementary information. The book also discusses the implementation in software and hardware of the main algorithms described." (Juan Tena Ayuso, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1190, 2010)
