    Subject: a gaggle of new ciphers
    0) The final final deadline on AES submissions ends today. The AES
       effort is shaping up to be rather interesting -- several intriguing
       ciphers have been submitted
    1) Bruce Schneier announces Counterpane's AES submission, Twofish:
       Twofish looks interesting.
    2) Ron Rivest and his team from RSA DSI announce their AES submission, 
       RC6, which is a very clever looking algorithm, apparently highly
       resistant to attack, and certainly extraordinary in its simplicity.
    3) Ross Anderson, Eli Biham and Lars Knudsen's AES candidate is
       Serpent. I haven't yet studied it.
    4) I just came across an algorithm called "MISTY1" designed by Matsui
       & Ohta and published as an internet draft. It appears to
       be completely resistant to differential and linear
       cryptanalysis. It seems to have some interesting properties. (To my 
       knowledge, it is *not* an AES candidate.)
