a lot of hardware relies on obscurity instead of cryptography (unsigned firmware updates, relying on not labeling pins to keep people out of powerful debugging interfaces, etc.). the math behind cryptography doesn't do anything for you if you don't use it.
Code: Select all
factorial = product . enumFromTo 1
isPrime n = factorial (n - 1) `mod` n == n - 1
The same is true of software. Developers in general do not really study security, and it's common for them to rely on their software being closed source for security.
