Abstract
The fields of software reliability, safety, and security are quite vast. One cannot hope to be an expert in every little aspect but should know enough to follow discussions and link the information from different fields. One aspect that always comes up in security is cryptography. Often misunderstood, always mysterious, cryptography is a complex subject and trying to explain it to the uninitiated is difficult. The purpose of this document is to give a quick overview of the essentials of this vast subject and, more importantly, point the reader to authoritative references.
