Who needs encryption?

Monday, 4 December 2006, 12:00 AM EST

This post is not about encryption being a useless technique; it is just about it not being a solution for certain problems and definitely not being a general solution for any problem.

The limitations I will discuss are properties of current standard encryption techniques, not limitations of specific product implementations.
