Cryptography interview with the NSA

Summary:I had the pleasure of interviewing a former chief scientist at the NSA Brian Snow after the recent 30th anniversary of PKC (Public Key Cryptography).  I posted this article which offers insight in to the past, present, and future of cryptography and it's worth a quick read for anyone interested in security.

I had the pleasure of interviewing a former chief scientist at the NSA Brian Snow after the recent 30th anniversary of PKC (Public Key Cryptography).  I posted this article which offers insight in to the past, present, and future of cryptography and it's worth a quick read for anyone interested in security.

It goes in to topics like:

  • Quantum cryptography
  • Quantum computing
  • Is there really a Government backdoor in AES encryption?

Take a look and let me know what you think in the talkback.  If you have any questions, I'll even try and get it answered from Mr. Snow and the inventors of PKC.
