This paper reviews some recent trends and developments in cryptography. Understanding the impact of the latest advances in cryptography is necessary to achieve and maintain adequate information security, but it is by no means sufficient: cryptography is not the solution to anybody's security problems; it is just one of its many ingredients. Modern information protection methods can only be effective if an almost impossibly wide range of conditions is met. Proper cryptography is one of these conditions. This paper reviews some recent cryptographic development, but focuses on understanding the cryptographic decision making process.
