Thou shalt have no other gods before the ANSI C standard 1664
No. The man may be a wiz at bit fiddling. He is completely ignorant in the biz of flowing those bits out to people who use the programming and gear. Just about everything he's said has a security problem w.r.t. to how the functionality get implemented, tested, shipped to the field, used by the field, and maintained in the field.
The fact that these security problems got shipped to the field is getting ignored completely, utterly and dismissed as 36-bit-la-la.

Now note that this disparaging remark was aimed at a me because he has an innate need to denigrate what I say and know. That's why I ignored that bait. What is more important is that the computing biz is on the threshold of having each and every CPU, especially the embedded stuff, have an ear that listens for an update broadcast and does so without any human intervention. Embedded systems usually implies no human hands touch the computing processes.
I don't give a poo about his opinions. However, he is ignoring facts about the computing biz that will distribute security holes and violations.
Is sci.crypt suppoesd to worry about distribution of cracking or just the techniques of encoding bits?
The latter is an intellectual exercise; the former is how people earn money to eat, sleep, and have time for the mental exercises.
