This is an introduction to cryptography for programmers; it doesn't aim to teach the theory, but rather to guide you in your attempt to understand how to use cryptography to secure your services. We'll illustrate it using the Go programming language.

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.

We present the principles behind quantum key distribution and discuss a few well-known QKD protocols. We focus more on the implementation of QKD protocols rather than security analysis. Another topic covered here is the security of QKD systems.
