popular science book Cryptography: The Key to Digital
Security, How it Works and Why it Matters was published
in June 2020.
The aim of the book is to open
readers' eyes to the critical role cryptography plays in
supporting our everyday lives. It examines why we need
cryptography in cyberspace, what it does, how we use it, and
what its limitations are. One of main purposes of doing so is
to use the explanation of cryptography to provide readers with
a more profound perspective on their own personal security
when they are operating in cyberspace. I also want to help
readers adopt a more informed position about the post-Snowden
world. The book thus discusses the role cryptography plays in
the wider social debates concerning how society should balance
personal freedom with control of information.
