If anything needs a For Dummies book, it’s cryptography. And Cryptography for Dummies does exactly what you’re hoping: It thoroughly demystifies crypto, so you can actually use it.
Chey Cobb was chief security officer for a U.S. government secret spy agency -- she knows this stuff. And she explains it in English: how it works, how to tell “strong” crypto from snake oil, how to decide what you need.
Cobb offers easy introductions to setting up public key infrastructure; encrypting email and files; authentication, secure e-commerce, VPNs, and wireless encryption. You’ll find dos and don’ts, principles of “cryptiquette” -- even some product recommendations. Bill Camarda
