In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
The "CryptoChallenge" Series Reaches Stage IV
Competition targets Open Source, techno-minded individuals, with a keen interest in Cryptography

If you know what this means...

...then the chances are you have already heard of the unusual series of "CryptoChallenges" devised and organized by the South African-based pioneers of digital security certificates, Thawte, now owned by security giant Verisign but still run very much as its own distinctive business unit, full of energy and interesting ideas - like the "CryptoChallenge" series.

Thawte Consulting has already run three CryptoChallenges, and its CryptoChallenge IV competition is due to start from 27 October, with a prize to the first person to crack the latest code of a Nikon Coolpix SQ Digital Camera. The runner up will get a copy of Kevin D. Mitnick s The Art of Deception. 

As Thawte explains to would-be entrants, the Cryptochallenge "targets Open Source, techno-minded individuals, with a keen interest in Cryptography." The company is challenging entrants from previous years to have another bash, too.

Oh, and if you are wondering what the solution to the paragraph above is, here are the 4 clues Thawte made available:

  • All punctuation marks and spaces are left in.
  • Some sequences are reversed.
  • Null characters have been added, but they serve another purpose as well.
  • Words are repeated.

Still baffled? Then you can find the answer here.
