A Stick Figure Guide to AES

Software Engineer and encryption aficionado Jeff Moser has created an XKCD-esque stick figure comic explaining the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES): where it came from, why it was necessary, and most-illuminatingly, how it works. Your eyes may glaze over toward the end when it gets into some hefty math, but even if you skim that part, you’ll know a lot more about encryption when you’re done.
