Publications about cryptography and cryptoanalysis

Ron was wrong, Whit is right (poor random number generators)

Abstract: Cryptographic experts have analysed more than 10 million public keys (X509 certificates and OpenPGP keys) and discovered serious problems in some of the X509 certificates it collected. The poor quality certificates are probably being generated by routers, VPN gateways and other embedded devices which use OpenSSL without having an adequate source of random numbers for key generation.

AES crypto broken by 'groundbreaking' attack

Abstract: The technique, which was published in the paper allows attackers to recover AES secret keys up to five times faster than using a brute force attack. This research is groundbreaking because it is the first method of breaking single-key AES that is (slightly) faster than brute force. But it doesn't compromise AES in any practical way.
