Crypto Suggestions?

Where would one suggest I start learning cryptography and stego? Books, video lectures, etc. are all welcome. I just want a good start as this is probably the most interesting sector of computer science for me. I would like material both on theories as well as the mathematics involved. Thanks to everyone in advance :)

Hi!, I haven't touched much crypto in my lifetime yet, but just doing some quick googling and amazon has a great deal of books on the topic: http://www.amazon.com/best-books-learning-Cryptography/lm/3C09JCS3BSDMM

There is also a few articles in the HTS Articles section, This is a great "intro to cryptography" : Image

Other than that, just read what ever you can find :) You can generally tell after reading the first few comments that people leave if it's a good resource :)

If you really wanna learn crypto from square one, i highly suggest the coursera Cryptography I and II courses from Stanford (https://www.coursera.org/course/crypto). This is a serious college level course on cryptography that can get a bit tough at times, but it teaches all the basics of crypto. It's entirely free and only really requires an email to sign up, but it can eat up quite a bit of time. I'd suggest first passing this course entirely, then proceeding on to other books/case studies/etc to expand your knowledge.

Crypto is math. Learn math and you're halfway there. The other half is knowing how to securely apply it. And the other half is not being fucking stupid when using it.

Yep. Crypto is 150%, which is why most people don't get it right.
Assume that everything I say is or could be a lie.
