But it would have been so simple. I will now illustrate this – using just two incomprehensible images. Actually, I have a hidden […]Read More What Learning about Feynman’s Path Integrals Was Good for

So I attempt – most likely in vain – to merge a pop-sci introduction to certificates with sort of an attachment to said e-mail discussion. So this post might be opaque […]Read More The Strange World of Public Key Infrastructure and Certificates
