Srinivasan Parthasarathy, PhD, argues that the arbitrary characters "Alice" and "Bob" who always appear in cryptography writings should be replaced with the familiar characters Sita and Rama (of the widely known Ramayana).

BK dislikes cross posting. I doubt he will be very impressed.

They're slightly more ambiguous gender-wise. Had a lot of silly twits giggling around in lectures because of whatever "Alice" was doing in an example.

It really feels like talking to a kindergarten class when most of your audience are aspiring computer scientists.

Ah, yes. Of course Alice is sending Bob an explicit photo of herself. What else would anyone ever use encryption for? :lol:

that or Alice was stalking Bob. Or sending secret love letters. Or secret santa with naughty gifts. Seriously it really is like a room full of ten year olds most of the time. Although using Cameron and Meredith occasionally backfires when a couple students assume that both of them are girls.

Knowing how "competent" most German bachelor students are, they probably would think I'm referring to the cast of Ein Herz und eine Seele and wonder whoever might've been Eva.

Why not Manning and Assange? Then you could throw in a little sexual identity confusion and sleep-fucking, to make it interesting, and have the evil CIA as the interloper.

That's just what the TLA's you don't know about want you to believe. It would seem Bruce has been compromised.
