Alice and Bob song (c.f. Cryptography)

The most familiar names in network security are neither vendors nor geeks: They’re Alice and Bob. Here’s to it a song:

Lyrics

Alice is sending her message to Bob
Protecting that transmission is Crypto’s job
Without the help of our good friend Trent,
It’s hard to get that secret message sent.
Work tries to deposit the check of your salary
But with no crypto, it’ll be changed by Mallory
You think no one will see what it is, you believe?
But you should never forget, there’s always an Eve…

[Chorus]
‘Cause I’m encrypting s**t like every single day
Sending data across the network in a safe way
Protecting messages to make my pay
If you hack me, you’re guilty under DMCA

DES is wrong if you listen to NIST
Double DES ain’t no better man, that got dissed
Twofish for AES, that was Schneier’s wish
Like a shot from the key, Rijndael made the swish
But Blowfish is still the fastest in the land
And Bruce used his fame to make a few grand
Use ECB, and I’ll crack your ciphertext
Try CFB mode to keep everyone perplexed

[Chorus]
‘Cause I’m encrypting s**t like every single day
Sending data across the network in a safe way
Protecting messages to make my pay
If you hack me, you’re guilty under DMCA

Random numbers ain’t easy to produce…
Do it wrong, and your key I’ll deduce
RSA, only public cipher in the game
Creating it helped give Rivest his fame
If we could factor large composites in poly time,
We’d have enough money to not have to rhyme
Digesting messages with a hashing function
Using SHA1 or else it won’t cause disfunction

[Chorus]
‘Cause I’m encrypting s**t like every single day
Sending data across the network in a safe way
Protecting messages to make my pay
If you hack me, you’re guilty under DMCA

Password confirmed. Stand by…
