Questions About Crypto

Bill Gasarch wants your help to judge a new book.

I am reviewing Encyclopedia of Cryptography and Security for a future SIGACT NEWS book review column. I will review it by asking various people for THINGS THEY WANT TO KNOW ABOUT from such a book, then I look them up, and see how the book does. (ease of finding it, value of information, etc.)

If you know someone who probably doesn't read this blog but has good questions (e.g., a colleague working in Systems who works on security) pass this on to them.
