Home Sec Amber Rudd: Yeah, I don't understand encryption. So what?


Re: Stargatesg7


That would be great because I have spent 15 years writing routines for cryptography (37 in general IT) (some of which people here have probably used) and I still struggle with secure routines.

I would really welcome your input if its so easy. As for triple-AES pfff. Just because you extend the key-length doesnt make it significantly more secure numpty.

Writing FDE is complex enough (and ours had flaws unsurprisingly that were teased out over time) let alone encrypting streaming data which is notorious for significantly more exploits thereof.
