Hacking Secret Ciphers with Python: A beginner's guide to cryptography and computer programming with Python

Pages: 436
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
Publication Date: April 14, 2013

Hacking Secret Ciphers with Python not only teaches you how to write in secret ciphers with paper and pencil. This book teaches you how to write your own cipher programs and also the hacking programs that can break the encrypted messages from these ciphers. Unfortunately, the programs in this book won’t get the reader in trouble with the law (or rather, fortunately) but it is a guide on the basics of both cryptography and the Python programming language. Instead of presenting a dull laundry list of concepts, this book provides the source code to several fun programming projects for adults and young adults.
