@ Bruce:
Great interview. As you mentioned the problem is in using security not developing it. I didn’t realize AES-128 was getting unusable, especially since it’s implemented in so many places. Then again, I’ve been more inclined to use 256-bit myself. NSA itself inidicated it’s better so I guess they might have had some idea about weaknesses?. Is this a practical one or just a reduction in the processing required?
