Cryptool a cool site to learn about Crypto

The Cryptool website has a wealth of information on how the past-present and future crypto-algorithms work. Download and install the freeware (Cryptool 1.4.10 is the current version), an easy and fun way to explore the inner working of the algorithms even further.
There is also a very good overview of Cryptology in this document.
The site is well done, clear and easy to navigate. Excellent work!

    Really a great tool. It helped me a lot understanding in more visual way how cryptography works. I used it during Cryptography class at the university. The most impressive one, I think, was the Diffie-Hellman key-exchange explanation.

    You may want to contact them and say thanks. They were looking for volunteers to keep developing the tools.
