Default How the NSA (may have) put a backdoor in RSA’s cryptography: A technical primer

From http://arstechnica.com/security/2014...hnical-primer/

This is a technical primer that explains what a backdoor is, how easy it can be to create your own, and the dangerous consequences of using a random number generator that was designed to have a backdoor. This is necessarily a long technical discussion, but hopefully by the end it should be clear why Dual_EC_DRBG has such a bad reputation.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
