Cracking Codes with Python: An Introduction to Building and Breaking Ciphers

Cracking Codes with Python: An Introduction to Building and Breaking Ciphers

$37.00
Learn how to program in Python while making and breaking ciphers--algorithms used to create and send secret messages!

After a crash course in Python programming basics, you'll learn to make, test, and hack programs that encrypt text with classical ciphers like the transposition cipher and Vigenère cipher. You'll begin with simple programs for the reverse and Caesar ciphers and then work your way up to public key cryptography, the type of encryption used to secure today's online transactions, including digital signatures, email, and Bitcoin.

Each program includes the full code and a line-by-line explanation of how things work. By the end of the book, you'll have learned how to code in Python and you'll have the clever programs to prove it!

You'll also learn how to:

- Combine loops, variables, and flow control statements into real working programs
- Use dictionary files to instantly detect whether decrypted messages are valid English or gibberish
- Create test programs to make sure that your code encrypts and decrypts correctly
- Code (and hack!) a working example of the affine cipher, which uses modular arithmetic to encrypt a message
- Break ciphers with techniques such as brute-force and frequency analysis

There's no better way to learn to code than to play with real programs. Cracking Codes with Python makes the learning fun!

CRIMINAL EVIDENCE (P)

CRIMINAL EVIDENCE (P)

$148.00
A comprehensive, cohesive look at criminal evidence Criminal Evidence provides a comprehensive legal framework of the rules of evidence, highlights key law enforcement issues in the field, and uses current, newsworthy headline cases to illustrate major points and generate student interest. While comprehensive--coverage spans the historical evolution of American jurisprudence from inception to contemporary courts--potentially complicated concepts are presented in a clear, reader-friendly manner. The text is organized to reinforce foundational concepts discussed in introductory courses prior to the presentation of sophisticated legal constructs The Second Edition is completely updated and significantly expanded with nearly 40% more content than the previous edition, five new pedagogical tools per chapter, and the complete text of the Federal Rules of Evidence, Magna Carta, and the Bill of Rights.

Criminal Investigation

$166.00
Swanson's Criminal Investigation, Twelfth Edition, is widely recognized as the most accurate and comprehensive text in the field. This practical, step-by-step introduction to criminal investigation gives students a logical framework for understanding the investigative process. Major sections cover current issues, such as environmental crime, the looting of archaeological sites, videotaping of crime scenes, street gangs, and drugs. Case studies throughout the text emphasize the applied technique of criminal investigation. Graphs, charts, and compelling photographs depict the practical aspects of investigation and clarify difficult scientific concepts.

Criminal Investigation is a comprehensive tool for students who are planning to work in law enforcement or a related field. Opening with a discussion of the evolution of criminal investigation and the importance of forensic science, this text fully explores the investigative process, types of crimes, and the trial process.


Criminal Investigation differs from other texts on the subject in several highly important ways:
-Presents criminal investigation as a science, rather than as an art, giving full importance to precision and rigorous methodology, setting it apart from and above other texts on the subject.
-Places techniques into context by discussing typologies in depth, including offenses, offenders, and victims, enabling readers to take away a more comprehensive understanding of criminal investigation, while providing access to substantial reference information.
-Includes crime-prevention sections that help crime scene investigators work with victims to avoid further loss.
-Recognizes the uniformed officer's role in and contribution to the ultimate success of an investigation, separate from the role of the detective.


The authors Charles R. Swanson, Neil C. Chamelin, Leonard Territo, and Robert W. Taylor bring their vast range of experiences to the topic. Collectively, they have worked in municipal police departments and a sheriff's office; been consultants to local, state, federal, and foreign police agencies; held faculty appointments in criminal justice departments; taught in police academies; and served as expert witnesses. The authors have written multiple books and articles and have presented papers at national conferences. Criminal Investigation reflects what they have learned from their practical experiences, supplemented by the relevant research.


New to This Edition
-Every chapter has been updated with the most current information.
-A host of new photographs, figures, and tables have been added to reinforce and expand the text coverage.
-Quick Fact boxes benefit students throughout the entire book.
-Feature numbered boxes are included in most chapters to aid students and provide context.
