Summer Cryptography Journal 2020

Over the past couple of weeks I took some time to research for a feasible cryptographic primitive protocol that can be used in YBITS.IO, a secure, simplefied, ananonymous large file tranfer service. Below is compilation of some blog posts and research papers I found to be useful that may also help you on your next project.

You’d ask why isn’t there AES-GCM? well, jump into this https://soatok.blog/2020/05/13/why-aes-gcm-sucks/. But that not the actual reason, the point is many of the listed chryptographic schemes here are less known to developers. Addintionally, Homomorphic Encryption is gaining wider adoption in cloud. This is something to keep an eye on.

Now, for not reinventing the wheel, here is another great compilation of cryptographic protocol source code in almost every popular language https://github.com/sobolevn/awesome-cryptography
