In this book, the author describes the fundamentals of secure storage and transportation of information. Van der Lubbe pays particular attention to symmetric (DES) and asymmetric (RSA) cryptographic algorithms, to methods for authentication, data integrity and digital signatures, key management, and to network aspects.
