Peter Loshin’s Simple Steps to Data Encryption contains just about 100 pages, but those pages are easy to read and covers a great deal of useful information. The book emphases mostly on Gnu Privacy Guard (GnuPG) and how to use it to protect data in motion. But it also imparts about cryptography and encryption related problems such as generating and handling public keys, key servers, signatures, and even encoded data at repose using FDE on modern operating systems.
From the very introduction, the author begins to impart. Here he is, talking to the reader about his or her enticement behind picking up the book, and a page later he has already explained – very simply and openly – how to encode, decode, and authenticate a numerally signed file.
He carry on in the same manner: explains the simple cryptography functions, recommendations on the OS you should use, and so on. By his own admission, he started writing a inclusive book about cryptography and became fed up, so he decided to write a short fictional tale about a random guy (Bob) who lives in the despot-run small state of Sylvania (also fictional), and wants to keep his rebellious thoughts and writings out of the hands of the authorities.
If you want to mug up how cryptography works, this is not a book for you. If you want to learn how to encode, decode, and numerally sign your data, how to generate public and private keys, how (and why) to annul them, public key functions, along with useful security practices such as authenticating data downloads, pick out good passphrases and how to encode a disk or your system hard drive, you will love it. The book is extremely short, but for a good reason – it never wanders off from the practical lessons. It does, however, have many links to supplementary resources, should you want to increase your knowledge. The book hemmed in as a story about Bob, who lives in a mythical country named Sylvania and has motives to keep intricate data from prying eyes. As the story reveals, Bob learns how to use GnuPG to encode and protect his data. Although it is not really for those who previously have a firm knowledge of cryptography, Simple Steps to Data Encryption offers a fine introduction to the topic in an approachable and easy way.
