Researchers crack unassailable encryption algorithm in two hours
A protocol based on "discrete logarithms", deemed as one of the candidates for the Internet's future security systems, was decrypted by EPFL researchers. Allegedly tamper-proof, it could only stand up to the school machines' decryption attempts for two hours. Without cryptography, no one would dare to type their credit card number on the Internet.

Hyperbolic Homogeneous Polynomials, Oh My!
Cutting-edge mathematics today, at least to the uninitiated, often sounds as if it bears no relation to the arithmetic we all learned in grade school. What do topology and combinatorics and n -dimensional space have to do with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division? Yet there remains within mathematics one vibrant field of study that makes constant reference to basic arithmetic: number theory.
