Re: Skipjack proposed Thursday?

Skipjack is a secret-key encryption algorithm designed by the NSA (and
NIST, supposedly) that is part of the Clipper/Capstone menagere.  It
is a classified algorithm, but it isof the same class of algorithms as
DES (namely a multi-round permutation/bit-swap algorithm).

Hope this helps.
