ITEC 6324 Posting for the week of October 17th

All,

This has been a busy, busy week. But last Thursday, I was able to hear Phil Zimmermann speak about encryption for Voice over IP (internet phone). Because of work I had to leave the lecture early but from the few minutes that I did hear him speak, you can tell that he's a very smart person.

Dr. Rogers had asked us to do some research on the Chipper Chip and also Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) for class this week.

The Chipper Clip is a cryptographic device with an underlying cryptographic algorithm known as Skipjack. Skipjack was developed by the National Security Agency (NSA) during the 1980s. Sounds like some scary stuff.

Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), also known as Rijndael, is a block cipher adopted as an encryption standard by the US government. It is supposed to be the next generation encryption standard for US civilian government & military communications. What's ironic is that two Belgian programmers created this standard. Thank you Belgium.

Also, check out the portal that I've created for my research project (TEPM 6391) - Project White Hat .
