in thread What's the idea of different salts in crypt()?

Add it right next to Applied Cryptography: Protocols, Algorithms, and Source Code in C or between it and Secrets and Lies : Digital Security in a Networked World? *Smiles*

Speaking of which, if you read "Secrets and Lies", what were your impressions? (I am only about half way through it myself.)

    Although a little pedantic at times, I feel that it should be the Number One Read (tm) for any and all CIOs and CSOs. I see people everyday who are quelled into thinking that security can be had with a product, and they are duped into leaving the humans, and the process alone.

    Security is a process, not a product, and I think Bruce hits the nail on the head (a bunch of times). I didn't mention Secrets and Lies in my post because it deals with the whole process, and I wanted text book product investigation.

    Yes, read "Secrets and Lies". Even if you aren't interested in how encryption works on a mathematical level, how to properly implement the process should be foremost on everyone's minds.
