Welcome to Cryptography.org

The old North American Cryptography Archives are being restructured into an international (as much as law allows) open source cryptography resource. This is because the law has changed since the reason for the existence of this site came about, and because the operator of this site no longer lives in North America (except for relatively brief visits). Due to the nature of my job and the limitations of my network connection, this hobby process may take a significant amount of time.

We also still have a listing of interesting cryptographic sites outside of North America and some information about where to get PGP and Gnu Privacy Guard.

This site is maintained by Michael Paul Johnson, who also maintains a neat Bible links site.
