Cryptography is concerned with the conceptualization, definition and construction of computing systems that address security concerns. This book presents a rigorous and systematic treatment of the foundational issues: defining cryptographic tasks and solving new cryptographic problems using existing tools. It focuses on the basic mathematical tools: computational difficulty (one-way functions), pseudorandomness and zero-knowledge proofs. Rather than describing ad-hoc approaches, this book emphasizes the clarification of fundamental concepts and the demonstration of the feasibility of solving cryptographic problems. It is suitable for use in a graduate course on cryptography and as a reference book for experts.

Cryptography is one of the most active areas in current mathematics research and applications. This book focuses on cryptography along with two related areas: the study of probabilistic proof systems, and the theory of computational pseudorandomness. Following a common theme that explores the interplay between randomness and computation, the important notions in each field are covered, as well as novel ideas and insights.

Cryptography is concerned with the conceptualization, definition, and construction of computing systems that address security concerns. The design of cryptographic systems must be based on firm foundations. Building on the basic tools presented in the first volume, this second volume of Foundations of Cryptography contains a rigorous and systematic treatment of three basic applications: Encryption, Signatures, and General Cryptographic Protocols. It is suitable for use in a graduate course on cryptography and as a reference book for experts. The author assumes basic familiarity with the design and analysis of algorithms; some knowledge of complexity theory and probability is also useful. Also available: Volume I: Basic Tools 0-521-79172-3 Hardback $75.00 C

cryptographer mathematician computer scientist
Goldreich, Oded was born on February 4, 1957 in Tel Aviv. Son of Isidor and Klara (Ingwer) Goldreich.
Bachelor in Computer Science, Technion, Haifa, Israel, 1980. Master of Science in Computer Science, Technion, Haifa, Israel, 1982. Doctor of Science, Technion, Haifa, Israel, 1983.
His research interests lie within the theory of computation and are, specifically, the interplay of randomness and computation, the foundations of cryptography, and computational complexity theory. Goldreich has contributed to the development of pseudorandomness, zero knowledge proofs, secure function evaluation, property testing, and other areas in cryptography and computational complexity. Goldreich has also authored several books including: Foundations of Cryptography which comes in two volumes (volume 1 in 2001 and volume 2 in 2004), Computational Complexity: A Conceptual Perspective (2008), and Modern Cryptography, Probabilistic Proofs and Pseudorandomness (1998).
