So, according to a little birdie tweeting in the night, the 2010 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) contains another encryption challenge that leads to actual cash prizes.
This year, the challenge is much harder. Luckily, I have the first clue:
"Everything you need is right there in print."
It's been flipped so, think like an engineer, not a developer ;)
I'll be dropping more clues here as the contest goes on. Happy hunting.
