Welcome to the security design line blog. I'm your editor, AJ Milne.
It's been an interesting few years in network security. On the commercial side, we've seen large E-commerce servers compromised for their credit card data. In standards, there's the slow and steady migration to longer keys and more demanding algorithms, as Moore's law keeps the pressure on. On the theoretical side, we've seen advances toward finding collisions in such ubiquitous hash functions as MD5 and the members of the SHA family.
Never a dull moment, really. So, I'm looking forward to doing my bit to help you keep it up with it all.
In the blog you're reading now, I'll be doing less formal piecesreflections on recent news, ill-advised gut reactions to wild rumors, that kind of thing.
So welcome aboard, and hang on. Should be a lively ride.
