I'm a touch cynical about anything that says cryptography, but doesn't
have a mathematician obviously behind it and endorsing it. It's just
too easy to invent crypto that you can't break, but doesn't withstand
proper prying eyes/minds. The counter argument tends to be that
something is better than nothing, but there is a hidden cost which is
that of writing and maintaining code
So with that in mind, are there any discussions for/against this move by
opendns? I believe that the original idea comes via DJB? I read that
opendns have picked an unusual curve to run with as the standard crypto
choice? Are their any benchmarks on performance?
Cool idea - just curious to see how it's going to get set in stone for
