  • It was a cold and rainy San Francisco afternoon. I sat sweating in the conference room of a gritty skyscraper downtown.

    It was a grey October day, the kind of day when a guy likes to cozy up next to a bank of servers to keep warm, when the Teacher first called me. "They think I'm nuts" were the words emanating from the phone. Well, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you. I sat up and went to my desk, away from the noisy fans cooling off all those Gigahertzes. "What's the problem, Miss?"The young woman explained that she was a not-yet-tenured teacher in a New England (greyer there than here) high school with a problem. Seems that a student in one of her classes was repeating things in the classroom that she had uttered only the night

    A student asked me an interesting question today, regarding what I foresee in the field of computer forensics in the coming years: 5, 10, & 50. Having not thought about it before , my answers surprised me a bit.

    In the privacy of our studies, offices, libraries, or wherever it is we have our computers, it may seem that we are alone, with no one looking over our shoulders. But every document we draft, every step through the Internet we take, is creating tracks through the digital environment in our computers

    Matthew Curtin
    This book is the story of the formation of the world's most widely-used system to protect sensitive information and how a group of independent cryptographers, civil libertarians, and hobbyists managed to demonstrate the system's weakness in June of 1997, even as the U.S. Congress debated the government's control over cryptography. As one of the coordinators of the DESCHALL project that broke a secret message encrypted with what was then the government standard, Curtin presents a unique insider view of how the project came together and what happened behind the scenes to demonstrate the weakness of the standard and ultimately to usher in the age of unrestricted cryptography.
