Can't help but find it ironic the winner of the 2018 Levchin Prize for Advancements in Real-World Cryptography has an invalid SSL certificate on his research website.
Every time I see openssl rather than libressl getting attention, I'm reminded of how often incompetence is rewarded.
What about LibreSSL?
If you haven’t seen the difference in quality and design from older versions of OpenSSL to more recent versions, it’s a quite impressive transformation.
I definitely learned a lot of new techniques for writing quality modern C from the recent versions of OpenSSL.
Congrats on the award.
Does OpenSSL have useful documentation yet?
When money cannot be given, at least kudos can be given.
Words to live by.
Didn't hear of the prize before, so searched for it. From the website of prize.
>>>>>The Levchin Prize was established in 2015 by internet entrepreneur, Max Levchin. The prize honors significant contributions to real-world cryptography and celebrates recent advances that have had a major impact on the practice of cryptography and its use in real-world systems. Up to two awards will be given every year and each carries a cash prize of $10,000.<<<<<
2015. That is pretty new. So, for me it's more of a publicity for the "prize" itself the the"advancement".
