I recently wrote a midterm that focused on cryptography. I spent many hours searching for information on the topic, using the internet and at the college library. Through Merlot, I was able to access this overview from RSA Laboratories, one of the industry leaders in developing standards for public-key cryptography around the world. The information is well organized and easy to navigate. It covers associated topics from overview and application to in-depth schemes and mathematical concepts. It addresses the most frequently asked questions on the subject. In my opinion, the impeccable credibility of the source along with its ease of use makes this one of the most effective resources for either a student or teacher.
