Introduction to Modern Cryptography (3rd edition)

Jonathan Katz and Yehuda Lindell


Introduction to Modern Cryptography is an introductory-level treatment of cryptography written from a modern, computer science perspective. It is unique in its blend of theory and practice, covering standardized cryptosystems widely used in practice without sacrificing rigor or an emphasis on foundations. It is intended to be used as a textbook in undergraduate- or graduate-level introductory courses, for self-study, or as a reference for security researchers and practitioners.

The table of contents and preface of the book are available for perusal. The preface explains the many additions to, and changes from, the first and second editions.

Instructors who are considering adopting the book for their course can email the authors for an examination copy. A solutions manual is also available to instructors who adopt the book for their course. We do not have a full set of slides for the book available. However, slides are avalable for courses based on our book that were taught by ourselves and others.

The webpages for the first and second editions (which include errata) are still available.
