Cryptography today is as necessary as ever and Kocher compares it to bricks in a building, in that that it is a foundational technology.
"I started my careers working on protocols like SSL 3 and had this sort of naive optimism that if we got the protocols and the math right, the security would follow from there," Kocher said. "Then I spent a lot of time looking at software security, and realized that software developers are never going to get it right and the whole architectures that we've got are screwed up."
