Cryptanalysis of the Skype service

Bookmark This (opens in new window)

I am a big fan of Skype, particularly because it utilizes full session encryption. I use Skype on a daily basis, both for text messaging as well as for voice communications.

I recently became aware of an excellent cryptanalysis (PDF) of the Skype service that was performed by Tom Berson of Anagram Laboratories.
