About

The Cryptography Blog seeks to keep readers updated on issues related to Cryptography and IT Security. We prefer a more technical approach, as we are all perpetual students of cryptography.

The writers and staff at the Cryptography Blog are dedicated to validating the trust that so many users place in their cryptographic systems. We are an open, non-profit organization with a focus on cryptography and information security awareness, training and development.

Volunteering

Contact us if you’d like to become a contributor to the blog or assist with auditing popular software/libraries. We are looking for cryptographers, mathematicians, programmers, ITSEC guys, former intelligence analysts and anyone with a passion for security through absolute transparency.

Open-OTP Development

Furthermore, we are beginning the research phase of a planned implementation of one-time pad ciphers which we (currently) call the Open-OTP standard. Any person interested in being a part of the development team is encouraged to contact us.

Ultimately, we believe that the use of OTPs combined with off-band key exchange will provide a more secure future in communications. There are very few details worked out as of yet, not withstanding the key exchange/key length problems.

There are several methods currently being devised to resolve those problems and others. One idea is to use randomly rotated expiring public keys. At this point, we’re not even sure it’s practical. But, its security is definitely worth the effort. We are confident in the community’s ability to approach these issues intelligently and with success.

Please contact us: cryptographyblog@aol.com

Some messages/posts will include our signature in order to verify that we actually created them.

Feel free to encrypt any message you send us. Just be sure to include your public key if you’d like an encrypted response!
