I'm not sure what you're asking for.  Introduction to cryptography?

You might want to take a look at the Handbook of Applied Cryptography,
which is freely downloadable here:

(although it obviously does not mention modern hashes/ciphers such as
SHA-2 and AES).

History and concepts of password hashing?  Something more specific to
