MD5crypt and GBDE: observations of a non-union cryptographer
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Robert Watson.
Cryptographers are great guys and smart people, but why don’t they ever produce code that solves the problems we have, and why do the whine when we do ?
MD5crypt, probably the worlds most widely used protection of passwords, was thrown together by a non-cryptographer in an afternoon, why did he have to ? (and why isn’t he too proud of it ?)
GBDE , an encrypted disk facility, took considerably more work in the second step of the Feynmann algorithm, and a solid beating from the cryptographers card-carrying union members, but did anybody learn anything and if so, what ?
