Notes on codes, projects and everything
To test our understanding in RSA public key cryptosystem, we were being asked to develop a computer program to demonstrate the cryptosystem. The whole system consists of a random number generator, an encoding module that is able to encode characters into numbers, an encryption module as well as decryption module and finally an RSA cryptosystem cracking module.
The program is written in Microsoft® Visual C6, the reason why Visual C6 is being selected is because we wanted to do something simple. There is no GUI being implemented as we wanted to spend more time in enhancing the program.
To generate random number, we used Blum-Blum-Shub random number generator as we found it to be the easiest to implement.
I happened to find a general solution suggestion on a Wikipedia entry when I was browsing the internet around to find a solution to modular exponential problem. The code snippet posted on the wikipedia entry claimed that it came from …
RSA is a cryptosystem …
While the previous file structure works well, I decided to tune some details before deploying the latest WordPress release. Besides that, I also started a new theme development project after my last theme which was developed more than 2 years ago. Thankfully, everything seems to work so far.
It is very difficult to like the way vim handle plugins by default, so I was really thrilled to find out about pathogen when a geek I followed tweeted about it. It took me some time to actually re-organize my current configuration to this new format. Then I thought why not reorganize my .vimrc as well, as my current version looks a bit cryptic after a while.
I need a slide show script for my portfolio pages but couldn’t find a good one anywhere so I decided to write one myself. The slide show script will be able to display image and the respective description in a predefined order. However, in this version, visitors would not be able to directly jump to a particular slide yet. The script is written in prototype‘s object-orientation approach hence you need to have prototype called.
I haven’t got much time lately, so didn’t write about this new phone that I recently imported. For some reason, this new phone of mine do not act as mass storage device like its predecessors (to certain extend). Thankfully I can still ssh in the phone and this makes it possible to mount it as a sshfs volume.
While my static pages and site theme is still under construction, I went to CodeIgniter.com to see how to work with it and played the tutorial screencasts. The reason behind in considering CodeIgniter (CI) to be used in my next project is because I don’t feel like re-inventing the wheel. However to port my current project to use CI may cause some problems as there are differences in how we implement MVC structure.
