By Andrew Hodges

It's only a mild exaggeration to assert that the British mathematician Alan Turing (1912-1954) stored the Allies from the Nazis, invented the pc and synthetic intelligence, and expected homosexual liberation by means of decades--all earlier than his suicide at age 41. This vintage biography of the founding father of computing device technology, reissued at the centenary of his start with a considerable new preface via the writer, is the definitive account of a rare brain and lifestyles. A gripping tale of arithmetic, pcs, cryptography, and gay persecution, Andrew Hodges's acclaimed booklet captures either the interior and outer drama of Turing's life.

Hodges tells how Turing's progressive notion of 1936--the idea of a common machine--laid the basis for the fashionable desktop and the way Turing introduced the belief to sensible attention in 1945 together with his digital layout. The e-book additionally tells how this paintings was once at once relating to Turing's prime position in breaking the German Enigma ciphers in the course of global battle II, a systematic triumph that used to be serious to Allied victory within the Atlantic. while, this is often the tragic tale of a guy who, regardless of his wartime provider, was once finally arrested, stripped of his safeguard clearance, and compelled to suffer a humiliating therapy program--all for attempting to stay in truth in a society that outlined homosexuality as against the law.

Kryptografie: Verfahren, Protokolle, Infrastrukturen

Dieses umfassende Einführungs- und Übersichtswerk zur Kryptografie beschreibt eine große Zahl von Verschlüsselungs-, Signatur- und Hash-Verfahren in anschaulicher shape, ohne unnötig tief in die Mathematik einzusteigen. Hierbei kommen auch viele Methoden zur Sprache, die bisher kaum in anderen Kryptografiebüchern zu finden sind.
