I am looking for people to review individual chapters of the forthcoming new edition of my Cryptography and Network Security textbook. In return, you will be acknowledged in the Preface and receive a free copy of the book when it comes out in late 2012. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to carefully read a chapter to check for technical errors, computational errors, and typos. I would need feedback in about 6 to 8 weeks.
This is a technical rather than a user book, so you need a technical background in this area. Chapters include

Chapter 2 Classical Encryption Techniques
Chapter 3 Block Ciphers and DES
Chapter 4 Finite Fields
Chapter 5 AES
Chapter 6 Block Cipher Modes of Operation
Chapter 7 Pseudorandom Numbers & Stream Ciphers
Chapter 8 Number Theory
Chapter 9 Public-Key Cryptography and RSA
Chapter 10 Other Public-Key Cryptosystems
Chapter 11 Cryptographic Hash Functions
Chapter 12 Message Authentication Codes
Chapter 13 Digital Signatures
Chapter 14 Key Management and Distribution
Chapter 15 User Authentication Protocols
Chapter 16 Transport-Level Security
Chapter 17 Wireless Network Security
Chapter 18 Electronic Mail Security
Chapter 19 IP Security

Please contact me directly rather than on the forum and please mention a special interest in one of these chapters if you wish. The files are in PDF format. Thanks!
