Errors in your manuscript

| Comments (1) | TrackBacks (26) |
Brad DeLong makes an important point about the fact that nobody is perfect:
My father believes that one should leave typos in one's galleys uncorrected. It is a law of nature that when one opens the printed version the first thing one will see will be a mistake. If you leave the typos alone, the first thing one will see will be a typo. If you correct the typos, the first thing one will see will be a truly horrible and inexcusable substantive error...

Absolutely right. On the other hand, in final review of SSL and TLS, we discovered that I'd claimed that 1 made a good RSA public exponent (it should have been 17). That's one typo I'm glad I fixed.

On the gripping hand, just seven lines later the text says that to do RSA private decryption you compute Ce mod N, which manages to be both a typo and a horrible, inexcusable substantive error.

RSA public exponent of 1 leads to very efficient encryption and decryption.

RSA public exponent of 0 is provably impossible to decrypt!

(Apologies to the presenters from Crypto 2003 rump session).
