Privacy, Security, Encryption "Jon Ellch was one of the presenters of the now infamous 'faux disclosure' at Black Hat and DEFCON last month. Ellch and co-presenter Dave Maynor have gone silent since then, fueling speculation that the entire presentation may have been a hoax. Ellch finally broke the silence in an email to the Daily Dave security mailing list over the weekend, and one thing is clear: he is chafing under the cone of silence which has been placed over the two of them."

What better way to clear your name than provide proof in the form of "I can't prove it to you without bad things happening, isn't that proof enough?" and taking a pot shot at the community which you feel has demonized you. (Way to keep the zealots burning by the way.)

Honestly when I first heard this my immediate reaction was pretty much, "Oh crap, that's big." But as time goes on and story gets muddier and muddier it sounds more and more like a crock.
