Tales from the Cryptograph

Bruce Schneier’s monthly email newsletter Crypto-Gram is a snarky yet sensible round up of computer security- and cryptography-related commentary and analysis. In the Aug. 15 edition, the founder and CTO of Counterpane Internet Security Inc. takes pot shots at a company that cites Tom Clancy as a cryptography expert, shares a wide range of news items from other sources, takes on photo-ID verification and airline security, and addresses reader emails.

If you’re at all involved in computer security and cryptography, Crypto-Gram is a must read. And it might even make you laugh. I know this item did: “The governor of Wisconsin has a secure hotline to national homeland security officials. And he gets telemarketing calls on it.”
