Christof Paar has the Chair for Embedded Security at the University of Bochum, Germany, and is Adjunct Professor at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, USA. Prof. Paar has taught cryptography for 15 years to engineering and computer science students in the US and in Europe, and he has taught many industrial practitioners at organizations such as Motorola, Philips and NASA. He has more than 100 publications in applied cryptography and is a cofounder of the Workshop on Cryptographic Hardware and Embedded Systems (CHES), the key academic event in this field. Jan Pelzl is Managing Director of escrypt - Embedded Security, a leading security consultancy company. Dr. Pelzl has successfully run many international industrial projects, and he has a deep insight into security needs in the real world. 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.

"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)
