For the final, I will draw from the lectures and not the text in the book. However, I do encourage you to familiarize yourself with the text since it will complement the lecture.
(As an FYI, there will be a homework assignment related to cryptography; the homework questions will be similar to the exercises in the book Cryptography Engineering, but you do not need to actually read that book.)
