Overview

Gaines's Cryptanalysis (formerly published as Elementary Cryptanalysis) is a standard elementary and intermediate text for persons seriously interested in modern science methods for enciphering and deciphering cryptograms. It does not simply repeat older material, but contains much about modern cryptanalysis that is not generally known except to experts. It is especially strong in modern forms of cipher solution.
This clear and thorough text also provides the reader with 166 specimen codes to solve. This edition for the first time also includes solutions. A special appendix includes final letters, sequence charts, digram, trigram tables, most common words in English and frequencies in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese.

Cryptanalysis 4.5 out of 5 based on 1 ratings. 2 reviews.

The most technical introductory cryptanalysis book. Classical (symmetric) cypher-breaking methods for English, and frequency tables for other languages. . . four out of five stars because it's outdated, no asymmetric RSA or the easier to use PGP, also outdated for quantum computer theory. Still, will stimulate people. Amazing how good it is considering originally written in 1956.
