Certification: Extrinsic, Intrinsic and Combined,
by E. Gerck. This work divides all possible security designs for Internet
certification in extrinsic, intrinsic and combined, providing a general
theory for Internet certification. The intrinsic and combined designs are
new certification methods.

Ontology, Part I, by E. Gerck.
Unicity, DES Unicity, Open-Keys,
Unknown-Keys, by E. Gerck. Revisits the concept of unicity and
shows that key-length is not the most important parameter to evaluate the
security of cryptographic systems, discussing possible weakness in current
systems and alternatives. To exemplify, a 70-bit exportable DES is proposed,
directly based on 56-bit DES.
