comment Public key cryptography - public key encrypts and cannot decrypt?
+1 nice explanation. ArtOfTheProblem uses a similar but possibly easier-to-understand explanation in their "Public Key Cryptography: RSA Encryption Algorithm" youtube video.

comment Software implementation of a commutative cipher?
Number of intersections of two sets gives some interesting algorithms that apparently can tell you if you have any SSNs in common, and if so, how many, without leaking any more information.

comment Stretching passwords for encrypting small files
+1 for linking to a complete interoperable best-practice standard for encrypting files -- OpenPGP -- rather than mentioning one particular primitive or another, which all too often are used incorrectly or at least in unnecessarily incompatible ways.

comment Is there a symmetric-key cryptography based on key establishment techniques?
@D.W. : Yes, Wikipedia's Kerberos protocol article lists a few RFCs that explain the protocol. I wish someone would edit Simple Wikipedia's Kerberos protocol article to explain it in a way that normal humans could understand.
