Introduction to Cryptography with Java Applets covers the mathematical basis of cryptography and cryptanalysis, like linear diophantine equations, linear congruences, systems of linear congruences, quadratic congruences, and exponential congruences. The chapters present theorems and proofs, and many mathematical examples. Cryptography with Java Applets also covers programming ciphers, and cryptanalytic attacks on ciphers. In addition many other types of cryptographic applications, like digest functions, shadows, database encryption, message signing, establishing keys, large integer arithmetic, pseudo-random bit generation, and authentication. The author has developed various Java crypto classes to perform these functions, and many programming exercises are assigned to the reader. The reader should be someone with a basic working knowledge of Java, but having no knowledge of number theory or cryptography. What sets this Introduction to Cyrptography with Java Applets apart from other crypto books is the level of interactivity with the reader. There are many Java applets on the World Wide Web that the student can run from their computer to see various ciphers and other crypto concepts at work. They do not need a Java compiler or interpreter to do this, just an Internet connection.
