Cryptography

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QnD2c4Xovk&feature=fvwrel – Diffie Hellman key exchange

To be watched in the order above…wish we had math teachers in school who explained it this way.

 

  1. http://nptel.iitm.ac.in/video.php?subjectId=106105084 Lectures 32, 33, 34 deal with Cryptography and cover all the important topics in 3 hours.
  2. If you are the old-fashioned learner, then The Code Book by Simon Singh (http://simonsingh.net/books/the-code-book/the-book/) is an entertaining and explanatory book on Cryptography. This book takes a story-telling approach and still manages to make you understand Symmetric and Public-Key cryptography and fascinate you with the 2000 year old rivalry between code-makers and code-breakers.
