Schneier on Security - "Crypto-Gram" Newsletter

“I've been writing about security issues on my blog since 2004, and in my monthly newsletter since 1998. I write books, articles, and academic papers. Currently, I'm the Chief Technology Officer of IBM Resilient, a fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center, and a board member of EFF.”
— Bruce Schneier

Perhaps the most interesting and salient item here is the Crypto-Gram Newsletter, “a free monthly newsletter providing summaries, analyses, insights, and commentaries on security: computer and otherwise.“

Imperfect Forward Secrecy: How Diffie-Hellman Fails in Practice

Communications of the ACM, January 2019, Vol. 62 No. 1, Pages 106-114
Research Highlights: “Imperfect Forward Secrecy: How Diffie-Hellman Fails in Practice”
By David Adrian, Karthikeyan Bhargavan, et al.

"We investigate the security of Diffie-Hellman key exchange as used in popular Internet protocols and find it to be less secure than widely believed."

Applied Cryptography: Protocols, Algorithms, and Source Code in C

This second edition of the cryptography classic provides you with a comprehensive survey of modern cryptography. The book details how programmers and electronic communications professionals can use cryptography -- the technique of enciphering and deciphering messages -- to maintain the privacy of computer data. It describes dozens of cryptography algorithms, gives practical advice on how to implement them in cryptographic software, and shows how they can be used to solve security problems. Covering the latest developments in practical cryptographic techniques, this new edition shows programmers who design computer applications, networks, and storage systems how they can build security into their software and systems.
