Digital Signatures (Advances in Information Security)

Buy

As a beginning graduate student, I recall being frustrated by a general lack of accessible sources from which I could learn about (theoretical) cryptography. I remember wondering: why aren’t there more books presenting the basics of cryptography at an introductory level? Jumping ahead almost a decade later, as a faculty member my graduate students now ask me: what is the best resource for learning about (various topics in) cryptography? This monograph is intended to serve as an answer to these questions— at least with regard to digital signature schemes.

Given the above motivation, this book has been written with a beginning graduate student in mind: a student who is potentially interested in doing research in the field of cryptography, and who has taken an introductory course on the subject, but is not sure where to turn next. Though intended primarily for that audience, I hope that advanced graduate students and researchers will find the book useful as well. In addition to covering various constructions of digital signature schemes in a unified framework, this text also serves as a compendium of various “folklore” results that are, perhaps, not as well known as they should be. This book could also serve as a textbook for a graduate seminar on advanced cryptography; in such a class, I expect the entire book could be covered at a leisurely pace in one semester with perhaps some time left over for excursions into related topics. I hope it will also prove helpful to graduate students and researchers in other fields, such as computer security or mathematics, who want to obtain a more thorough appreciation of digital signatures and known results in this area.

Mechanics of Moving Materials (Solid Mechanics and Its Applications)
Mechanics of Moving Materials (Solid Mechanics and Its Applications)

This book deals with theoretical aspects of modelling the mechanical behaviour of manufacturing, processing, transportation or other systems in which the processed or supporting material is travelling through the system. Examples of such applications include paper making, transmission cables, band saws, printing presses, manufacturing of...

Modern Compiler Design
Modern Compiler Design

"Modern Compiler Design" makes the topic of compiler design more accessible by focusing on principles and techniques of wide application. By carefully distinguishing between the essential (material that has a high chance of being useful) and the incidental (material that will be of benefit only in exceptional cases) much useful...

Space-Time Design of the Public City (Urban and Landscape Perspectives)
Space-Time Design of the Public City (Urban and Landscape Perspectives)

Time has become an increasingly important topic in urban studies and urban planning. The spatial-temporal interplay is not only of relevance for the theory of urban development and urban politics, but also for urban planning and governance. The space-time approach focuses on the human being with its various habits and routines in the city....


Cost Optimization of Structures: Fuzzy Logic, Genetic Algorithms, and Parallel Computing
Cost Optimization of Structures: Fuzzy Logic, Genetic Algorithms, and Parallel Computing
While the weight of a structure constitutes a significant part of the cost, a minimum weight design is not necessarily the minimum cost design. Little attention in structural optimization has been paid to the cost optimization problem, particularly of realistic three-dimensional structures. Cost optimization is becoming a priority in all civil...
Arguing Well
Arguing Well

Arguing Well is a lucid introduction to the nature of good reasoning, how to test and construct successful arguments. It assumes no prior knowledge of logic or philosophy. The book includes an introduction to basic symbolic logic. Arguing Well introduces and explains: * The nature and importance of arguments * What to look for in deciding...

The Archaeology of Household Activities
The Archaeology of Household Activities
There were a number of chapters I thought were exceptionally well written and researched... valuable reading for all classical and historic archaeologists unfamiliar with Schiffer's work or with prehistoric archaeology, where point pronveniencing, object functions, use of space, and similar foci are routine. Others will enjoy reading Chapters 3 and...
