|The Manga Guide to Cryptography (No Starch Press)|
|Monday, 27 August 2018|
This book turns the art of encryption and decryption into plain, comic-illustrated, English. Authors Masaaki Mitani and Shinichi Satou show Inspector Jun Meguro on a quest to bring a cipher-wielding thief to justice that also illustrates how cryptographic ciphers work. Illustrated throughout with Japanese manga, the book covers cryptography topics such as classic substitution, polyalphabetic, and transposition ciphers; symmetric-key algorithms like block and DES (Data Encryption Standard) ciphers; and how to use public key encryption technology. It also explores practical applications of encryption such as digital signatures, password security, and identity fraud counter-measures.
Author: Masaaki Mitani and Shinichi Satou
