Cracking DES: Secrets of Encryption Research, Wiretap Politics & Chip Design 2006-05-21 16:41:56 Description: Here's a text with a bit of a political slant. The book describes a machine the authors built to crack DES encryption. In their preface, they note: "There can be no more doubt. DES is not secure."

Type: Book
Format: Paper, HTML
Price: free online

Limitations: Most of the book is in the public domain. Unlike a lot of other texts online, this one appears to be the product of scanning coupled with optical character recognition (OCR). The result is a series of HTML pages formated to keep the relationship with the original paper text pages intact. It's a bit weird, as some chapters are actually referenced off-site. But if you find the topic interesting, it's probably worth the time.
