I should preface this all by saying that Applied Cryptography is probably one of the most influential crypto books ever written.

In defense of Applied Cryptography – A Few Thoughts on Cryptographic Engineering

It certainly played a part in getting me interested in the field. This is not because AC is a lousy book, or because the material is inaccessible or wrong. And that has led to a whole lot of fail, some on a pretty grand scale. The detailed argument goes something like this: Applied Cryptography demystified cryptography for a lot of people.


By doing so, it empowered them to experiment with crypto techniques, and to implement their own code. No problem so far. Inevitably their code made its way into commercial products, which shipped full of horribly ridiculous, broken crypto implementations.

This is the part that was not so good. Just for one modest example, take this fragment of code spotted in a Diebold voting machinecirca Thanks to Applied Cryptography, the Diebold coders were able to write a perfectly functional Linear Congruential Generator in no time at all. Even if the cipher was based on the cryptographic equivalent of an abacus, even if it was broken in the same conference in which it was published, Bruce will still give you a full design description and the address of the guy who owns the patent.

And you have to love the understated way in which he sums up his opinions. Instead, he leaves it with the following, dry remark:.


Whenever someone discovers a new cryptanalytic cryptoggaphie, he always seems to try it out on FEAL first. The other magical thing about AC is that you really feel that after writing it, Bruce must have been a few pounds lighter — and some of that weight was his soul. Notes from a course I teach.
