Booksigning at RSA 2006
Interhack founder Matt Curtin will be at the RSA 2006 conference in San Jose, signing copies of his latest book, Brute Force: Cracking the Data Encryption Standard.
Brute Force is the inside story of how thousands of people who never met worked together to defeat the U.S. Government's standard for data encryption and change the debate in Washington over public policy governing cryptography. The DESCHALL Project, as it was known, was started by Rocke Verser and further organized by Curtin and Ohio State University graduate student Justin Dolske in response to a $10,000 prize offered at the 1997 RSA Conference.
In “a compelling and wide-ranging narrative,” Curtin explains how technology, social networking, and public policy came crashing together in the summer of 1997.
