Re: [cs-pdcdca] Re: [ProgSoc] A questions
That is nice to meet someone who is interested in the cryptography which
is the practical implementation of the part of matematics which is the
oldest - theory of numbers. (and most fascinating for me ;) )
The information that AES is not secure is not a surprise... it was a
matter of time.
Encryption is mathematical warfare. Mathematics is the universal language.
Encryption is secrecy. Secrecy is a declaration of war.
