 How to use cryptography in computer security

"Cryptography is the mathematics underlying computer security. While a Ph.D. in cryptography is hardly a requirement for keeping one's systems secure, an understanding of the basics helps in decision making about security, both for system administrators and IT managers. In this article, I present a non-technical overview of a few key concepts in cryptography that are relevant to consumers of security solutions. I then look at some widespread myths about cryptography, and give some advice on practical matters relating to cryptography."
