Bernstein has a reputation for nice crypto stuff. some say he uses BM. Anyone noticed ? his other softwarez are quite OK, like DNS stuff etc.

He will probably not chime in. He is busy with conferences and lots of travel and might not even see your message before it expires. He does have some useful crypto stuff, especially his elliptic curves. However, if I could corner him at conference I would suggest him to devote more energy to provably secure crypto, instead of the "academically assumed secure" stuff. Elliptic curve PKI has never been proven secure. The fact that someone did not admit to breaking it does not prove it is secure. Proof must be in the pudding. If you read this Daniel, you know what I mean. We ought to push the crypto community in the direction of provably secure mathematics since our opponents would not tell us if they did break a scheme or algorithm. This is the problem with unproven NP-hard problems and algorithms like RSA, elgamal, and ECC. They rely on assumptions rather than proof. We need to get away from this trend. Nobody has ever proved that composites of large primes are impossibly hard to factor. It is just assumed since *academia* hasn't figured it out. In Eurocrypt '94 the NSA's internal newsletter expressed jubilance over this trend. Let's disappoint them in the upcoming years with a new trend of algorithms that can be absolutely proven secure and approachable only in the "Brutus oracle." Teiler pairs are provably hard. It is easy to prove there is no shortcut to complementary divisions in a chain of hidden subgroups and their child subgroups. It is provable the only way to attack them is brute force trial. With divisors of 1024 bits or more this is provably hard for many decades to come. It avoids the many pitfalls of ECC implementations.

I doubt that DJB would wallow in this sewer.
