For others who would like to read the article that Joe mentioned, go to:

choose to search the site and use the search term "encryption"
if you search today, 5/7/97 and search only today's paper you will get one entry
in your result list...that's the article you want to read.

If you don't search till tomorrow...? So don't put off till tomorrow what you
can do today!


Thanks for keeping us updated on math in the news. I don't always have time to
search the NY Times (it's not readily available in the back hills of PA).
But when you send these messages I can always track down the article on the web.
