Posted by vikram_1982 [send private reply] at June 24, 2002, 02:09:57 AM CryptograPHY is the greatest. I have been doing some work on it 4 the pAST one year. U cannot call it programming.. It is a way in which u transfer data, so that others dont understand what it is.

Posted by henrik [send private reply] at June 29, 2002, 12:23:41 PM You might want to buy 'Applied Cryptography' by Bruce Schneier. It's an excellent introduction to cryptography for programmers and doesn't require as much knowledge in mathematics as the more advanced books. 'Handbook of applied cryptography' isn't nearly as easy to read.

Posted by henrik [send private reply] at June 30, 2002, 05:53:25 PM Well :) I'm getting more and more grown up to my great horror. I never thought i'd be the one to leave. But I do stop by occationally.
This time Psion sent me a msg asking me to sign up go the old geezers site, and i stopped by here. I'm glad TPU is still going.
Posted by mrnorman [send private reply] at July 01, 2002, 03:00:05 AM Wait, since when was cryptography not an art of programming??? Sure, it could be built into a piece of hardware, but what's the fun in that. I say that people should build programs to screw with data if they want to, lol. I found it well worth my time coming up with the most insane block cipher ever, lol. By the way, it's a 280-bit block and very unique...Inefficient, but unique, lol.
