The Code Book: Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography

The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography

In his first book since the bestselling Fermat's Enigma , Simon Singh offers the first sweeping history of encryption, tracing its evolution and revealing the dramatic effects codes have had on wars, nations, and individual lives. From Mary, Queen of Scots, trapped by her own code, to the Navajo Code Talkers who helped the Allies win World War II, to the incredible (and incredibly simple) logisitical breakthrough that made Internet commerce secure, The Code Book tells the story of the most powerful intellectual weapon ever known: secrecy.
Throughout the text are clear technical and mathematical explanations, and portraits of the remarkable personalities who wrote and broke the world's most difficult codes. Accessible, compelling, and remarkably far-reaching, this book will forever alter your view of history and what drives it. It will also make yo wonder how private that e-mail you just sent really is.
Rezension

"An absorbing tale of codemaking and codebreaking over the centuries." -- Scientific American
"Singh spins tales of cryptic intrigue in every chapter." -- The Wall Street Journal
