. I've quit my old job at iSOCO
last week, and will
start working in a small, newly-founded crypto company
I got tired of e-business, B2B, B2C and all the buzzwords.
On the other hand, the people running SCYTL are friends of
mine (one of them, aleix
also an advogater
), i like cryptography, and i'll
have the chance of working on a software product
development: the decision was straightforward :-).
MDK. The 0.4 release is almost a month old, but
i've made little progress on new features. The next step
should be adding guile extensibility, but it's a lot of
work... btw, thanks to the great work of Agustin Navarro,
we already have Mandrake packages of mdk!
Books. Mostly reading crypto these days: Levy's
Crypto is not that bad, Kahn's The
Codebreakers is like reading a (very good) novel,
Scheneier's Applied cryptography is a must read, and
Koblitz's Algebraic aspects of cryptography nicely
brings up the beauty of crypto math...
