Cryptography


1. Analyzing Forged SSL Certificates in the Wild

2. Analysis of the Linux Random Number Generator
An extremely well written paper to understand Linux entropy generation mechanism. If you are a beginner it might take you 4 or 5 readings to comprehend properly, but I can assure you the effort is worth the reward. You will be able to understand any other entropy related article/discussion. There have been updates to this paper, but I can recommend reading the original one first.
