9780123744791: Disappearing Cryptography, Third Edition: Information Hiding: Steganography and Watermarking (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Software Engineering and Programming)

Cryptology is the practice of hiding digital information by means of various obfuscatory and steganographic techniques. The application of said techniques facilitates message confidentiality and sender/receiver identity authentication, and helps to ensure the integrity and security of computer passwords, ATM card information, digital signatures, DVD and HDDVD content, and electronic commerce. Cryptography is also central to digital rights management (DRM), a group of techniques for technologically controlling the use of copyrighted material that is being widely implemented and deployed at the behest of corporations that own and create revenue from the hundreds of thousands of mini-transactions that take place daily on programs like iTunes.

This new edition of our best-selling book on cryptography and information hiding delineates a number of different methods to hide information in all types of digital media files. These methods include encryption, compression, data embedding and watermarking, data mimicry, and scrambling. During the last 5 years, the continued advancement and exponential increase of computer processing power have enhanced the efficacy and scope of electronic espionage and content appropriation. Therefore, this edition has amended and expanded outdated sections in accordance with new dangers, and includes 5 completely new chapters that introduce newer more sophisticated and refined cryptographic algorithms and techniques (such as fingerprinting, synchronization, and quantization) capable of withstanding the evolved forms of attack.

Each chapter is divided into sections, first providing an introduction and high-level summary for those who wish to understand the concepts without wading through technical explanations, and then presenting concrete examples and greater detail for those who want to write their own programs. This combination of practicality and theory allows programmers and system designers to not only implement tried and true encryption procedures, but also consider probable future developments in their designs, thus fulfilling the need for preemptive caution that is becoming ever more explicit as the transference of digital media escalates.

  • Includes 5 completely new chapters that delineate the most current and sophisticated cryptographic algorithms, allowing readers to protect their information against even the most evolved electronic attacks
  • Conceptual tutelage in conjunction with detailed mathematical directives allows the reader to not only understand encryption procedures, but also to write programs which anticipate future security developments in their design

From the Back Cover:

In a time of electronic espionage, this new edition of our best-selling title ensures the security and confidentiality of your electronic content, communication and commerce!

Disappearing Cryptography, Third Edition delves deep into steganography by delineating a number of different methods to hide and therefore protect information in all types of digital media files. During the last five years, the continued advancement and exponential increase of computer processing power have enhanced the efficacy and scope of electronic espionage and content appropriation. Therefore, this new edition amends and expands on outdated sections by focusing on new dangers, and includes five completely new chapters that introduce newer more sophisticated and refined cryptographic algorithms and techniques (such as fingerprinting, synchronization, and quantization) capable of withstanding the most evolved forms of attack.

Each chapter provides an introduction and a high-level summary enabling the reader to understand the concepts without wading through technical explanations, and presents detailed, concrete examples for those who want to implement the algorithms or write their own programs. This combination of practicality and theory allows programmers and system designers to not only implement tried and true encryption procedures, but also to consider future developments in their designs, thus fulfilling the need for preemptive caution that is becoming even more explicit as the transference of digital media escalates.

  • Includes five new chapters that delineate the most current and sophisticated cryptographic algorithms, allowing readers to protect their information against even the most evolved electronic attacks.
  • Conceptual tutelage in conjunction with detailed mathematical directives allows readers to not only understand encryption procedures, but also to write programs which anticipate future security developments in their design.
