And AES finalist Twofish.  (What we now call "AES" is actually
Rijndael, see http://csrc.nist.gov/archive/aes/index2.html )

In the essay above, I did note a thread of pro-Establishment political
correctness running all through the rhetoric.  Does he really buy it,
is he just protecting his tenure in the Corporate Suits hierarchy, or
is he tying a pork chop around the necks of a few inconvenient truths
in hope that policymakers will at least play with them?

Only Bruce Schneier knows the real Bruce Schneier Facts.  If I had to
guess, I would say all three.  One thing we do know:  You won't catch
him consorting with the peasants.
