A (Relatively Easy to Understand) Primer on Elliptic Curve Cryptography | Ars Technica

“If you just want the gist, here’s the TL;DR version: [Elliptical Curve Crytography,] ECC is the next generation of public key cryptography, and based on currently understood mathematics, it provides a significantly more secure foundation than first-generation public key cryptography systems like RSA. If you’re worried about ensuring the highest level of security while maintaining performance, ECC makes sense to adopt. If you’re interested in the details, read on.”

  1. Think I might pass on this one:) even if it is ……(relatively easy to understand)

    I do have a comment on the Japanese stationary though…. I love stationary I think a big part of starting a new class or workshop is I get to go out and buy paper, journal, writing implements gives me a feeling that is hard to describe, sort of like new beginnings, anything is possible….
    Are you familiar with Bill Plotkin? Soulcraft. Your Pacific Grand Canyon pic reminded me of some writing he is doing about hiking/visioning in Utah. You might be interested in his website, when I feel ‘strong’ enough both physically and mentally I might try one of his ‘vision quests’ we will see.
