      No... at SciPy, I had just briefed about few common crypto algorithms... This time I am planning to brief on breaking the weak algorithms using methods like frequency count, pattern finding etc.

      Had u attended SciPy 2011??

    Hi, I would like to try out and play around with the python code you used for the presentation? Can you share it somewhere (say github or bitbucket if you prefer private repos)?
