    Cryptography Books


    I am making a program for my java class that deals with encryption and decryption. I was wondering what the best cryptology books are so I can use these to add more options to the program.

    Thanks in advance

    Your question has been asked various time already, eg[1].

    But in short - there are free books/lectures on the net, which
    cover the topic nicely, e.g.
    LANAKI's Crypto Course Lessons[2], a good collection[3] and,
    my favorite, the Handbook of Applied Cryptography[4].

    For anyone serious about cryptography, Schneier's Applied Cryptography is a must.

    Thanks guys I'll look into these. I have been meaning to make a program for this for a while because I do some of it every now and then but I have not gotten around to it. I got the chance to use it as a term project so I figured I would start and use books to learn more than I know now. Thanks for the response.
