Cryptography in Practice
March 11, 2002
Despite its rich history, cryptography has only recently come into common use. Widespread availability of cryptography has a tremendous impact on the safety and integrity of modern information systems, both in their ability to repel attacks and in the ability of attackers to avoid detection and prosecution. We will discuss what cryptography can and cannot do for attackers and defenders. Special attention will be given to how cryptography affects forensic analysis.
