Though often invisible, cryptography plays a critical role in our everyday lives. Broadly defined as a set of tools for establishing security in cyberspace, cryptography enables us to protect our information and share it securely. It underpins the security of mobile phone calls, card payments, web connections, internet messaging, Bitcoin transactions-in short, everything we do online.

Clearly and concisely, Keith Martin reveals the many crucial ways we all rely on cryptographic technology and demystifies its controversial applications and the nuances behind alarming headlines about data breaches or Edward Snowden. Essential reading for anyone with a password, Cryptography offers a profound perspective on personal security, online and off.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Keith Martin has a knack for explaining one of today's toughest inter-disciplinary problems in an accessible and accurate way. There's no math required, just a willingness to engage your brain. You will finish this book both entertained and better informed.--Kenny Paterson, professor of computer science, ETH Zurich
Encryption is both one of the most fiercely contested and one of the least understood tech-policy issues of our time. Keith Martin has written an indispensable guide to the ongoing crypto wars--balanced, gripping, and in plain English.--Thomas Rid, professor of strategic studies, Johns Hopkins University, and author of Active Measures
In his typical low-key style, Keith Martin explains how digital security is necessarily based on cryptosystems, secret keys, and public keys. A must-read for anyone who wants to participate competently in discussions on the role of cryptography in our society--Vincent Rijmen, co-designer of the Advanced Encryption Standard
