OpenBSD Theo de Raadt has announced the release of OpenBSD 5.2. The OpenBSD 5.2 release page has a detailed list of all changes and improvements. As always, I would love for someone to write proper items about OpenBSD releases - it's outside my interests and cursory glances don't do it justice.

Bingo. If it's designed by government to encrypt, then it's also designed by government to decrypt. Think about it: which government would allow to design cipher that is not breakable by themselves? that would be totally illogical. They want security, but they want to hold the master key ... that's easier than remote installation of government sponsored spyware [used in many operations], etc. You don't have to ask for the keys to encrypt. You can do it yourself.

You are a wo/man of big faith, zima.

P.S oh, and why do you think they did hardware acceleration for AES? it's not a surprise. They want wide adoption.
