Coding Theory and Cryptography
by David Joyner
Publisher: Springer 2000
Number of pages: 256
This book concerns elementary and advanced aspects of coding theory and cryptography. The coding theory contributions deal mostly with algebraic coding theory. Some of these papers are expository, whereas others are the result of original research. There are both, historical and mathematical papers on cryptography. Several of the contributions on cryptography describe the work done by the British and their allies during World War II to crack the German and Japanese ciphers.

This book describes several encryption programs for various ciphers, along with how to write programs that can break these ciphers. The book is for complete beginners, it will teach you how to encrypt and decrypt messages.
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.

Visual cryptography provides a technique by which one secret can be distributed into two or more shares. When the shares are xeroxed onto transparencies and then superimposed, the original secret can be discovered without computer participation.

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.
