Anyone read a good cryptography book lately?
I'm just looking for a new title to read. Anything but the handbook of applied cryptography. I'm also looking for a book with both mathematical and programming approaches with a good review of course. Any feedback is welcomed thanks

I think the "Handbook of Applied Cryptography" is a very good reference if you're interested in cryptography. A book which isn't as up-to-date but still quite good is "Applied Cryptography: Protocols, Algorithms, and Source Code in C, Second Edition" by Bruce Schneier. It's significantly less expensive than the "Handbook", (it's about $60 or so, if I recall), but you can probably find it for much less online.

It may be a little off topic but the " Cuckoo's Egg" is a classic.

One that I've been reading: "Learn Encryption Techniques with BASIC and C++"
Look inside the book

I'm currently reading a book called Cryptography And Network security: Principles and Practice (Second Edition) by Williams Strallings
