I'm a student at the University of Calgary, in Computer Science (3rd year) and a former (and returning) intern at Microsoft. I mostly use Java, Python, PHP, and C#. I specialize mostly in Android and web, though this is far from the limit of my expertise.

My hobbies are watching anime, Japanese, Spanish, drawing, writing, physics, neuroscience, and psychology.

comment Can a shift cipher attain perfect secrecy?
@CodesInChaos Yeah, it doesn't make intuitive sense, but I guess for the purpose of my exam, it's best to keep it in mind, then ditch the knowledge thereafter... Such is academia.

Just thought I'd let you know: She stood by her word; every letter is apparently treated as its own message. Seems silly to me... Thanks again, though!

Great clarification--I think I'd best email my teacher and tell her it's wrong. Thanks!

@Thomas I thought the same, except we were taught the shift cipher with the correct method, and also taught the OTP separately...
