Zimmerman deserves his plaudits, though this one might be a bit misguided... It was actually Whitfield Diffie and Martin Hellman that came up with the concept of asymetric keys... Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir and Len Adleman (RSA) get credit for finding a mathematical algorithm that is suitable for this purpose. And Phil Zimmerman deserves credit for implementing the algorithm in code, and for the balls to release it openly in spite of the government and RSA breathing down his neck.

For further information I'd recommend Simon Singh's The Code Book.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
