    In general it is not odd for buyer and seller to have different perspectives. Indeed, ever since PCs migrated from the hobbyist community into the business community, such a difference has existed in the PC market. Buyers and sellers are not playing on the same course. Why does this matter? Because most PC engineers I know do not talk to their biggest customers-business managers. As a result, most... View full abstract»

    Looks at efforts now under way to resolve the issue of copyright infringement liability for on-line Internet access service providers. First, the Administration's Information Infrastructure Task Force (IITF) released a White Paper report recommending that present liability for copyright infringement be kept in place for Internet purposes, without change, because that would give Net access service ...

    Montgomery multiplication methods constitute the core of modular exponentiation, the most popular operation for encrypting and signing digital data in public-key cryptography. In this article, we study the operations involved in computing the Montgomery product, describe several high-speed, space-efficient algorithms for computing MonPro(a, b), and analyze their time and space requirements. Our fo... View full abstract»

    Like many architectural techniques that originated with mainframes. the use of multiple processors in a single computer is becoming popular in workstations and even personal computers. Multiprocessors constitute a significant percentage of recent workstation sales, and highly affordable multiprocessor personal computers are available in local computer stores. Once again, we find ourselves in a fam... View full abstract»

    Secure money-transfer cards continue to find acceptance in commerce. Currently, three main types of these cards coexist: magnetic stripe, mass memory, and smart. We describe another approach: merging the processor and coprocessor on a small chip dedicated to public-key cryptography. We added parts needed to obtain a low-cost smart card compatible with the ISO 7816-3 standard. By developing the pro... View full abstract»

  • Cryptographic smart cards

    Smart cards have the tremendous advantage over their magnetic-stripe ancestors of being able to execute cryptographic algorithms in their internal circuitry. This means that the user's secrets (be these PIN codes or keys) never have to leave the boundaries of the tamper-resistant silicon chip, which brings maximum security to the overall system in which the cards participate. Smart cards also prov... View full abstract»

    In December 1995, the final public review of the High Performance Serial Bus draft standard concluded, and the IEEE ratified it as IEEE Std 1394-1995. As 1394 working-group chair, I extend my appreciation to all those who took the time to review vote, and comment upon the draft standard. It is also gratifying to the entire working group to observe the various computer and digital audiovisual (AV) ... View full abstract»
