A Graduate Course in Applied Cryptography
by Dan Boneh, Victor Shoup
Publisher: cryptobook.us 2017
Number of pages: 818
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 that we aim to achieve and then present constructions that achieve the required goal.

A classic in cryptographic literature. Text is divided into parts: Descriptions of the principal systems of cryptography; Examples of deciphering (cryptanalysis); Lists and tables with bibliography; plus a section titled 'The Playfair Cipher'.
by William F. Friedman - NSA
One of the most well-respected publications on cryptanalysis, as was written by William F. Friedman, one of the true experts in the field. Now declassified by the NSA, this book is key in helping individuals understand and solve cipher systems.
