Martijn on Dual_EC_DRBG


Good friend Martijn Grooten (twitter, blog) and chief editor at the Virus Bulletin was at Athens for a day or so yesterday and was kind enough to make a presentation about Dual EC DRBG and the possible involvement of the NSA on it. The event was hosted at the Hackerspace. It was a scientifically balanced presentation with a cool explanation of how elliptic curves are used in such cases and what kind of risks this entails.

Pizzas after the presentation were curtesy of the Greek OWASP Chapter.
