Wiley & Sons, after many external reviews, agreed to publish our book ‘Foundation of Coding’.

The book is based on the translation of a French version published by Dunod in 2007, which knew several editions (corrected and reprinted in 2009, second edition in 2013). Compared to the French book, this one has been revised and significantly augmented (20% additional pages and 27 new exercises). We now cover frequently used techniques, as elliptic curves, Low density parity codes or matrix barcodes. In addition, we have updated several parts, including steganography and watermarking, Maximum Likelihood decoding, Galois hashing and counter mode, OAEP, saturation attacks (on AES, the Advanced Encryption Standard), post-quantum cryptography. Eventually we emphasized the description of the organization, contents and objectives of each chapter and section in their introductions.
