Re: The RC2 debate

We still have to have a spec that can be referenced.

I personally don't care who wrote the spec, as long as it's published,
widely available, and the community agrees that it's good enough to use.

Do a DejaNews search for the subject "Specification for Ron Rivests Cipher 
No.2" (I didn't call it RC2 :-) posted to sci.crypt on 11 Feb 1996, 
message-ID <4fk39f$f70(_at_)net(_dot_)auckland(_dot_)ac(_dot_)nz>.  This has 
also ended up on a 
number of FTP sites, and I've seen it on at least one CDROM archive.  I assume 
that's enough to qualify it as "widely published".
