- Applied Cryptography
Some of my papers and preprints are below. If there is a
particular paper you would like access to, then please send me an
email; alternately, if you know the square root of two, then you can try to
fix this broken link.

Note: some pdf viewers do not render the grey shading used in
some of my diagrams correctly. If you see solid black boxes, then try
another pdf viewer.
