Hi!
I would recommend you the "Handbook of applied cryptography".It is
considered as an encyclopedia of cryptography and it's for free!
During my MSc it helped me a lot with the crytpography course.

Does anyone have any good recommendations for books on Cryptography
especially geared towards beginners?  I have a few titles in mind
already, I just don't want to leave out any good one's if I can help it.
Thanks

Murad, et al...

Your best investment comes from New Riders publishing.  They have a
series of books focused on security mostly from and or by/overseen
Stephen Northcutt.  Network Intrusion Detection will teach you all about
reading "the wire".  Intrusion Signatures and Analysis will help you
learn more and Network Perimeter Security is a good primer...

Lots of luck.

Back when you were a security nipper playing with netstat and gurgling =
at the sight of portscans on your fisher price server, which book did =
you use to learn security basics from? I've inherited a 50 node network
and am just getting into learning how = to secure it. Any suggestions
gratefully accepted. Murad
