the media frenzy will go bonkers over ecc

keys

dude, schneier, please please don’t write a rant that can so easily be blown out of proportion by other persons in the media. ok, i know we should be paranoid about all pseudo random number generators, but frankly all the media will read out of this piece is: ecc is b0rk3d omg!!11!!!11!

it really irks me that people crap on ecc (elliptical curve cryptography) just because they haven’t taken the time to look into some of the excellent literature on ecc’s use (and abuse, this is security, everything is broken as some point in time). even math kids should be studying up on this because wow is the math behind ecc fun.
