                   TODOS: MATHEMATICS FOR ALL

                   http://www.todos-math.org

   A new national organization, TODOS: Mathematics for ALL,
   was formally launched on Thursday, April 10, 2003 during
   the annual meeting of the National Council of Teachers of
   Mathematics, held in San Antonio, Texas.

   The Mission of TODOS is "to advocate for an equitable and
   high quality mathematics education for ALL students, in
   particular Latino/Hispanic students, by advancing the
   professional growth and equity awareness of educators."

                        CRYPTOGRAPHY A-Z

           http://www.ssh.fi/support/cryptography/

   The authors of this site present the information to
   de-mystify cryptography. They state that "The use of
   cryptography is no longer a privilege reserved for
   governments and highly skilled specialists, but is becoming
   available for everyone to make use of." Their resources are
   divided into these categories:

     Introduction to Cryptography
       - Basic Terminology
       - Basic Cryptographic Algorithms
       - Digital Signatures
       - Cryptographic Hash Functions
       - Cryptographic Random Number Generators
       - Strength of Cryptographic Algorithms
       - Cryptanalysis and Attacks on Cryptosystems
     Algorithms
       - Public Key Cryptosystems
       - Secret Key Cryptosystems
       - Cryptographic Hash Functions
       - Random Number Generators
     Protocols and Standards
