Intro to Stream Ciphers
February 6, 2014
Last night, the six of us who braved the blizzard covered stream ciphers (and a little bit of lockpicking.) JP Smith gave a presentation, (which is available on github) about how stream ciphers are constructed, why they work, and how to break them. If you would like to attempt the puzzle, the previous blog post contains all the information, and the presentation should explain (mostly) how to do it.

Welcome to ISUSec, Illinois State University's information security club. We are a registered student organization aimed towards hackers and information security enthusiasts. ISUSec is the first hacker community at ISU and the surrounding area. ISUSec is also the home of ISU's CCDC team. Our primary focus is hands on learning. We generally have a student presentation every week, and a professional presentation once a month.
Why Create ISUSec?
There were quite a few reasons as to why ISUSec was created. Gaining more knowledge in the field of information security was one reason; applying the theory from class in a practical manner was an even better reason. Beyond learning everything information security related, we wanted to create as well as encourage a hacker culture both on and off campus. It's something that was missing in the area. To be successful at this, we need to connect with and ask the information security community for support. By doing that, we can develop professional relationships with well known information security companies and individuals.
