    No, it does not.

    The U.S government is very interested in having secure algorithms that companies can use and be secure against espionage from rival powers.
    Yes, it almost certainly does. The algorithms the NSA recommends are different from those that are used for high-defense, military applications.
    The publicly recommended algorithms should only be used for short-time, temporary storage in military applications according to NSA's own internal documents.

      I'm refering to this.

      But while we are at it lets not forget NSA & RSA payoff

      Then there is the good old clipper chip.

      Any one claiming the NSA is here to help businesses stay safe is delusional. Don't forget all those big hacks in the US recently that they claim were RUSSIA,,RUSSIA,RUSSIA were all based on exploit software written by the NSA.

          Dear person, I came here for this sole purpose, to comment we'll now wait for the other four to complete Blake's 7. You came first, so at least I'm happy I'm not the only one.

            I'm waiting for AVON1 , because we know that is the survivor.

              Why is it that recently when I find time to pop on Phoronix, someone is reminding me of old TV shows?

              ...another one I want to watch.

              ...

              On topic, however... I've got a lot of reading to do.

                With the NSA history calling the discussion conspiracy can age as good as milk.

                  There are no rival powers. They're all ruled by the same POS.

                    A new way to make a cryptocurrency and a new way to write broken password handling subsystem...
                    Yet, 17x faster than SHA-3, apparently no padding problems, and the reference implementation is written in Rust.

                      All right! A massively parallel, SIMD-friendly hash algorithm with seemingly every strength and no weaknesses.

                      Yet for some reason, NSA conspiracy theories are much more attractive.
