How boring is it?

Lately I've been watching back to back episodes of Luther, first on Netflix for season 1 and then on iTunes for season 2. If you've never heard of it, you might want to check out the website. It stars Idris Elba, Stinger Bell from the wire.

The basic concept is hunting down psychopaths. Actually, it's a lot more complicated then that, but this is not a post about the series. I'm posting about Luther because of something from the last episode that I watched. The two bad guys had devised a way to communicate securely with each other across the Internet, while arousing no suspicions. I'm taking a course in cryptography and network security at the moment, so I was curious. They talked via the comment section of a blog. The world's most boring blog. There was no need to worry about drawing attention. No one would ever bother to look there.

My eldest commented, "Just like your blog. Schools, kids, PTA meetings - what could be more boring?"

The bottom line? Rest assured that your comments are secure.

    It was a book cypher instead of a Ceaser cypher and they had the comment alerts go directly to their phones via email. Pretty clever.


I love comments. Ads, on the other hand, will be deleted.
