Re: "Dangers" discussion

Re: "Responsible Behavior" Discussion

Wow, even though I've written RSA encryption and decryption software without using any libraries (did all the math myself, and wrote my own large number math library) I still didn't get it until I read the explanation above.

Re: "Responsible Behavior" Discussion

The PGP cryptosystem includes a variant of the TTP in the form of the web of trust. PGP users digitally sign each others' identity certificates and are instructed to do so only if they are confident the person and the public key belong together. A key signing party is one way of combining a get-tog...

Re: Best language to learn for programming contests

I thought myself Visual Basic first, but C++ is the shit for most computer things you want to create.
