This book covers public-key cryptography, describing in depth all major public-key cryptosystems in current use, including ElGamal, RSA, Elliptic Curve, and digital signature schemes. It explains the underlying mathematics needed to build these schemes, and examines the most common techniques used in attacking them. Illustrated with many examples, the book provides a solid foundation for professionals in government, cloud service providers, and large enterprises using public-key systems to secure their data. It is also useful for those taking the CISSP exam (Certified Information Systems Security Professional).

Professor Lynn Batten holds the Deakin Chair in Mathematics and is the Director of the Information Security Research Group at Deakin University. Her research interests include combinatorial geometry, computer network security and computational chemistry. As Associate Dean for Academic and Industrial Research at the University of Manitoba, her former institution, she established a number of agreements between the University and various industry and government sectors.

The book is suitable as a university text for years three and above, and I recommend that every computer scientist read it. I would be inclined to describe this book as offering what every computer scientist should know about public key cryptography. ( Computing Reviews , 9 September 2013)
