Subject: Cryptography/Cryptanalysis

Hi all,

I'm really interested in the field of cryptanalysis, but am not really
familiar with cryptography. The texts I have read have explained what
cryptography is, but havent really given me an example of implementing it
real life(ie: encrypting a unix file system with aes(just an example)). If
there are any books/online texts you can refer me to please do so. Also,
what guides/books do you recommend I should take a look at on the subject
Cryptanalysis? My goal is to some-day become a cryptanalist for the NSA.
Sounds cheasy but from what I know about cryptology, facinates me.
Thanks in advance, any response will be much appreciated.
