I'm David Finkelstein, and welcome to my Encryption Blog.
Here I'll share with you some of my thoughts and observations on security in general, and encryption in particular. I might discuss in detail the security aspects of Symantec's encryption products, but I'll leave the product announcements and business related messages to others. My interest is in cryptography and security, as practiced here at Symantec and elsewhere.
I've worked for security related companies for over 15 years. Here at Symantec, I'm the Director of Engineering responsible for the Encryption group's Core Cryptographic team. We produce the PGP Software Development Kit, a FIPS validated cryptographic toolkit used throughout Symantec, as well as PGP Command Line, the absolute best OpenPGP compliant application available (though I freely admit my opinion is biased).
So welcome to my blog. I expect to get a bit technical at times, but I'm not a cryptographer myself. I hope you find it both informative and accessible.
