Re: Keys behind the encryption
I'm not surprised that first ... Iran is a Government of all has suffered an attack of cyber war. They are aware of the effects of a cyber attack and, as many other governments, they are improving their cyber capabilities.

Be aware they aren't the unique ones ... North Korean, Pakistan and Syria are also very dangerous.

Keys behind the encryption
Amazing that with all of the chatter and importance put on encryption, all "sides" of the data security sphere are so lax with the keys aspect. Something missing from all of the recent Snowden SXSW hoopla and "encrypt everything" movement is a better understanding on the key management role of keeping control over encryption. In this instance, I suppose though, there may be a broader benefit to key lapses.
