Hi everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Pardon me if this question's been asked (and if it's in the wrong forum) - I Googled within PF, but couldn't find what I need.

My question is: How much math do I need to begin learning cryptography/cryptanalysis? I'm not planning on becoming a security expert/codebreaker or anything of the sort; it's just something that interests me.

As for my math experience, I'm currently taking Linear Algebra and Calc II in college, and will probably take Discrete Math next term (and I've also taken some programming classes) - where do I go from there?

Thanks!
