With the prevalence of digital information, IT professionals have encountered new challenges regarding data security. In an effort to address these challenges and offer solutions for securing digital information, new research on cryptology methods is essential.

Multidisciplinary Perspectives in Cryptology and Information Security considers an array of multidisciplinary applications and research developments in the field of cryptology and communication security. This publication offers a comprehensive, in-depth analysis of encryption solutions and will be of particular interest to IT professionals, cryptologists, and researchers in the field.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Cryptanalysis
  • Cryptography
  • Cryptology
  • Information Security
  • Multidisciplinary Applications
