John Markoff in the NYT

John Markoff in the NYT on a "new and improved" approach to encryption. I've learned much that I know, and much of my skepticism about new encryption algorithms from Bruce Schneier's Crypto-Gram mailing who teaches us over and over to be careful before embracing the latest greatest trick. I haven't looked at the underlying research that Markoff alludes to but it's odd that this is the first that we've seen written on this new approach.
