Well, as I'm writing the proposal, I'm more emphasizing the structure of generic implementations of crypto-like stuff, not the actual implementations of MD5, AES, RSA, etc. The second half of my proposal was on actual implementation, where I discuss using either Crypto++ or Botan, with author permission. I'm in the midst of getting that permission.
The New Busy is not the too busy. Combine all your e-mail accounts with Hotmail.
