I am writing this as I am listening to the new cryptocracy podcast, an Internet radio show dedicated to research in computer security and cryptography. The host is Thomas S. Heydt-Benjamin an active researcher in privacy technology and computer security, based in ETH and IBM Zurich. The show features an eclectic selection of announcements, interviews with researchers and presentation of key papers in the field.
It is refreshing to hear that the content is clear, but uncompromising on technical accuracy and detail. It feels like a technical conference chat delivered right into my living room! Highly recommended for those with a serious interest in security research beyond what the popular trade press can deliver.
