Digital Fortress

Digital Fortress - Dan Brown It's a pretty good thriller, but once you've read one of Dan Brown's, you've read them all. Moreover, as kind of a specialist in cryptography and computer science, it's hard to not laugh at some of the ridiculous stuff Brown tells us in this story (rotating cleartext, X11-filters, FTP packet collectors, ...). I guess it must be the same for cultural history experts reading The Da Vinci code. :-)
