The Arithmetic of Elliptic Curves (Graduate Texts in Mathematics)
The Arithmetic of Elliptic Curves (Graduate Texts in Mathematics)

The theory of elliptic curves is distinguished by its long history and by the diversity of the methods that have been used in its study. This book treats the arithmetic theory of elliptic curves in its modern formulation, through the use of basic algebraic number theory and algebraic geometry. The book begins with a brief discussion of the...

Formal Correctness of Security Protocols (Information Security and Cryptography)
Formal Correctness of Security Protocols (Information Security and Cryptography)
Computer network security is critical to fraud prevention and accountability. Network participants are required to observe predefined steps called security protocols, whose proof of correctness is evidence that each protocol step preserves some desired properties.

The author investigates proofs of correctness of realistic security protocols in...
