Cryptography Books/Websites

  1. Oct 1, 2009 #1
    Can anyone recommend some good websites, or preferably books, which give an introduction to Quantum Cryptography? I'm looking for a level aimed at first year undergrad level, assuming little to no prior knowledge really, except for A-level quantum physics.
    Any suggestions would be very welcome.
    Many thanks.

    I have read this, excellent book by a very thorough and respected author, Simon Singh, near the end it contains an great description of how quantum cryptography was discovered, could be implemented, and current state of the technology.

    The book is a couple of years old, and includes the history of cryptography from ancient to present times.

    Good luck...
