E.4. Security and Cryptography Resources

There are many books on Web security and cryptography. We recommend the following books—in no particular order—which cover topics relevant to those discussed in Chapter 9:

  • Web Security, L. Stein (Addison Wesley). An excellent, comprehensive book with sufficient technical and nontechnical depth.

  • Web Security and Commerce, S. Garfinkel and S. Spafford (O'Reilly). A good introductory book that explains the topics in nontechnical language.

  • Applied Cryptography: Protocols, Algorithms, and Source Code in C, B. Schneier (John Wiley and Sons). Covers the field of cryptography in technical depth.

  • The Code Book, S. Singh (Anchor Books). An enjoyable popular science book.

  • The RSA encryption web site, http://www.rsa.com.

  • SSL extensions and patches for Apache: http://www.apache-ssl.org, http://www.modssl.org/, http://www.openssl.org/source/.
