Earlier Forms of Cryptography (Non-Technical)

(Notes: Continuing the series of articles on cryptography, here I will discuss the two early cryptographic techniques to better prepare readers for succeeding topics where I plan to cover symmetric key cryptography that will run up to the Russian One-Time Pads and the German Enigma which are the highlights of the second world war.) Spartan … Continue reading


Introduction to Cryptography (Non-Technical)

(Notes: I’ve been having some interesting debates with a friend lately, and one of the things we did agree upon is the lack of resources in cryptography that the public can easily understand. Well, it is common knowledge that there are discussions in the security community that the best security defense is an educated user. … Continue reading

Princeton Cold Boot Memory Attack

Ok, I know, I know. I owe you guys a proper update after being “absent” from blogging for quite some time. So, here is my take on the recently released Princeton Memory Vulnerability that seems to be gathering so much attention with the press and creating a sort of panic in the encryption community. — … Continue reading

Is Quantum Cryptography the “unbreakable encryption” cryptographers have been searching all along?

Cryptography had been around even before computing emerged as a field. The necessity to protect information had been around as early as Caesar’s time. Now every mono alphabetic substitution cipher is referred to as a Caesar’s cipher. The war between cryptanalysts and cryptographers had been long and frustrating. During the second world war, cryptanalysts raced … Continue reading

My Christmas Wishlist *updated*

Things I’d like to have/do this yuletide season (in no particular order): A Violin. I want to try something new next year. So, I’d like to have a violin and eventually learn to play it. I don’t like instruments with more strings/holes/keys than the fingers on my hand. Haha. (Mom, Dad… please…?) A pen with … Continue reading

What Field Should I Pursue?

Pretty suggestive result. Haha. I’d like to think I’m on the right track. 😛 Your Learning Style: Innovative and Independent You are determined and driven. Confident in your abilities, no field is too difficult for you.You Should Study: Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Design, Engineering, Philosophy, Physics, Political Science What Should You Study?

Thoughts on Quantum Cryptography

From Quantum Cryptography: The idea of QC was first proposed only in the 1970’s by Wiesner (1983) and by Charles H. Bennett from IBMand Gilles Brassard fromMontr´eal University (1984, 1985). However, this idea is so simple that actually every first year student since the infancy of quantum mechanics could have discovered it! Nevertheless, it is … Continue reading
