Graduate Textbook Citation!

August, 2016 (Updated January, 2017: I purchased the book!)

I’m absolutely amazed and thankful to God that I actually got to see results obtained in a solely authored publication of mine (authored at 22 years of age) being taught to students just 3 years after its publication.

TEXTBOOK: Protocols for Secure Electronic Commerce, Third Edition, Mostafa Hashem Sherif, ISBN 9781482203745, May 25, 2016

My study of the possible effects of a botnet’s computing power on Bitcoin mining (and other new crypto currencies like Litecoin, in particular) was cited in a chapter about cryptocurrency! Here’re some pictures of the citation in the book, a picture of the book in our university’s library. The book, and the chapter featuring my research results, are actually used in courses related to cryptocurrency in e-commerce, for students around the world – from my own university (University of Florida) to CMU, Duke etc!
