The Book of Bad Crypto Decisions (part 1 of 1,000,000) - Orr Dunkelman


The borderline between cryptography and computer security (or "How to use cryptography") was, is, and will be, a place for many problems. In this talk we shall go over several of the (many) examples to "what might get wrong", and discuss how to avoid them (and how to mitigate them).

The examples will cover GSM's (in)security:

issues with generating random numbers: and finally, how the public-key infrastructure (PKI) is mis-used.
