Lecture Notes on Cryptography
by Shafi Goldwasser, Mihir Bellare
Number of pages: 289
This is a set of lecture notes on cryptography compiled for 687s, a one week long course on cryptography taught at MIT by Shafi Goldwasser and Mihir Bellare in the summers of 1996-2001. Cryptography is of course a vast subject. The thread followed by these notes is to develop and explain the notion of provable security and its usage for the design of secure protocols.

Quantum cryptography could well be the first application of quantum mechanics at the individual quanta level. The fast progress in theory and experiments over the recent years are reviewed, with emphasis on open questions and technological issues.

This book is about constructing practical cryptosystems for which we can argue security under plausible assumptions. The book covers many constructions for different tasks in cryptography. For each task we define a precise security goal ...

The viewpoint taken throughout these notes is to emphasize the theory of cryptography as it can be applied to practice. This is an approach that the authors have pursued in the research, and it seems to be a pedagogically desirable approach as well.
