The real surprise to me was Annabella Sciorra. The print I saw had no credits, so I wasn't expecting her and it took me a bit to place her face.
She truly lit up the screen in her 5 minutes. In an extended dialog with Diesel as her husband, she goes from dispassion, to jealousy, to outrage, to sexual hunger in the most nuanced and natural performance I have seen in a long while.

Henry Fiuli Salvatore Paul Piro Mike Belaggio Peter Dinklage Noting their importance, in cryptology research if not digital culture, the security company that created Alice and Bob, RSA Security, chose them as their theme for their annual security conference.
This timeline aims to create an accurate record of the history of Alice and Bob, as well as to identify the cultural and gendered contexts in which they emerged.
In the early s, public key cryptography was invented in secret by the GCHQ. This is the technology that would later lead to the birth of Alice and Bob. Ellis, Clifford Cocks, and Malcolm Williamson. This task of finding what would become known as a mathematical one-way function was left to his colleague Clifford Cocks.
Type II refers to the typology developed for future ciphony equipment. In the spring of , it was realized that while SIGSALY was successful, development for ciphony equipment with other physical and functional properties was needed. Type II was ciphony equipment for medium-quality security that was transportable, if not entirely portable. The paper demonstrated that it was possible to securely exchange information over non-secure channels, which they called public key cryptography.
Because of this limitation, cryptography was limited to important communications—diplomatic, military—and outside of the reach of civilians. Prior to , secure communication required setting cryptographic technologies with identical cryptographic keys such as with the famous Enigma , Purple , and SIGABA machines.
This was an onerous and risky process that needed to be repeated often it is critical to change cryptographic keys frequently to maintain security. Diffie and Hellman had invented, for the second time unbeknownst to them , a way to encrypt communication over insecure channels without the prior exchange of keys.
In short, their invention provided the basis for secure transactions on the Internet, and set in motion a fundamentally new way to communicate, to organize, and to socialize. This spark of inspiration led Diffie to spend the next few years traveling across the US in search of a solution. Diffie moved between archives, universities, and colleagues to discover everything he could about cryptography. On the eve of the Arpanet that would soon become the Internet, this idea was a revolution in cryptography and soon became the backbone of digital communication.
Diffie and Hellman had developed public key cryptography, for the second time, in the complex context of military projects, academic associates, and government funding. This time, however, the idea was in the wild, and would soon be pursued by young computer scientists, Ronald Rivest, Adi Shamir, and Leonard Adleman, who were quick to see the commercial possibilities for public key cryptography on the emerging Internet.
At this point, Alice and Bob did not yet exist. Their pioneering work has stood the test of time, and has been capable of adapting to and resisting challenges. Moreover, there was no working implementation of the cryptosystem. In , young MIT computer scientists Ronald Rivest, Adi Shamir, and Leonard Adleman found a suitable one-way function and then developed a working implementation of public key cryptography. As they were working to develop prospective algorithms, Rivest and Shamir also consulted with Leonard Adleman also at MIT , to exploit his skill in torture testing algorithms and finding weaknesses in their design.
Rivest stayed up through the night, drafting a first version of the paper that described their algorithm. Recognizing the commercial possibilities, in December of that year, they filed a patent for their invention granted September 20, Moreover, in the decades since, many attacks have been waged against the RSA cryptosystem, but none have yet to be successful and the design is still considered secure. The RSA cryptosystem soon became a key part of digital information infrastructure, and helped define the massive changes that the Internet later brought about.
In this history, Alice and Bob play a small role. Nonetheless, Alice and Bob were critical for how Rivest, Shamir, and Adleman understood and later communicated their complex algorithm. Rivest, Shamir, and Adleman won the Turing Award for their role in designing, implementing, and commercializing public key cryptography. As soon as Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir, and Leonard Adleman discovered what they believed to be a suitable one-way function for their version of public key cryptography, Rivest sent a copy of the draft paper outlining their cryptosystem to Martin Gardner, a mathematics columnist at Scientific American.
The subsequent publication popularized the RSA algorithm and brought it under scrutiny. Gardner quickly replied to Rivest—within a week—and the two set to work to develop a column that would explain the algorithm and to offer a cryptanalysis challenge to readers. Stephen Levy described the challenge in his book Crypto as follows: Rivest would generate a public key of digits and use it to encode a secret message.
If the system worked as promised, no one in the world would be able to read the message, with two exceptions. One would be someone who had both a powerful computer set to break the message with brute force and a very large amount of time on his hands. The other exception, of course, was the person holding the private key match to that particular digit public key p.
The publication served two important purposes. First, it made the RSA algorithm accessible to a wide audience, which generated a great deal of interest and excitement they received many requests for the full technical paper, and ended up sending some copies of it across the globe.
With this public interest also came interest by the intelligence community. Rivest, Shamir, and Adleman found themselves in the same situation that Diffie had rebelled against years earlier in his search for public discussions of cryptography—if Rivest, Shamir, and Adleman were not careful, they risked having their invention retrospectively classified or blocked by the US National Security Agency, since at the time cryptographic materials were considered munitions later, in the s, this issue would be resolved.
Second, the publication allowed for the algorithm to be tested by a broad population, with many different ideas and approaches. So far, the RSA algorithm has proven robust given sufficiently long key bit lengths.
A new kind of cipher that would take millions of years to break" Martin Gardner. Five years after public key cryptography was invented at GCHQ, two years after public key cryptography was re-invented by Diffie and Hellman, and a year and two articles after a practical cryptosystem was developed by Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir, and Leonard Adleman, Alice and Bob are finally born. In this paper largely identical to their MIT technical report published a year earlier , Rivest, Shamir, and Adleman need to describe the complex secure communication scenarios possible with their version of public key cryptography.
To do so, they write: First ever mention of Alice and Bob. Inventing Alice and Bob was an unusual approach to scientific and technical communication. This is the first ever mention of Alice and Bob in any connection to cryptography, and the start of a long and storied history. While it is possible—even likely—that Rivest, Shamir, and Adleman might have been familiar with the movie, there is no evidence to indicate that the movie influenced their naming decision.
More likely, since Alice and Bob are common English names that start with A and B, the names were chosen without much forethought. The first investor was Jack Kelly, but soon he was joined by others, making modest investments despite not having any real product to sell. Bidzos landed several large contracts notably, Lotus Development bought a license in , initiated the RSA Security conference, and soon the company was on more secure financial footing. By the s, the Internet boom was beginning and RSA Data Security was positioned to be a key player, since their security software was essential for emerging opportunities like ecommerce.
RSA Data Security continued to win lucrative contracts and was tapped by an emerging Internet technical committee to share the responsibility with Digital Equipment Corp.
Given their potential position as the security provider for the Internet, RSA Data Security drew the ire of the US National Security Agency, which had begun to protest the expansion of their strong cryptography products.
RSA Data Security soon became a key player in the fight to control cryptography, which they won in when cryptography technology was removed from the munitions list and permitted to be sold globally. In the ramp-up to the dot. After their birth in , Alice and Bob soon became tropes of cryptology research.
Over the next decade of academic research in cryptology, Alice and Bob would become ubiquitous and a key epistemic tool. In this work, just a year or two after their birth, we already see evidence of the epistemological centrality and stereotypical depictions of Alice and Bob.
The couple is thus re-introduced: In the same year, two more academic publications make mention of Alice and Bob. On May 20, Michael O. A Protocol for Solving Impossible Problems.
Up to this point, however, all references to Alice and Bob referred to them as featureless symbols—little more than named abstractions. In the cryptology literature that follows, most but not all publications make reference to Alice and Bob, often in their first line. The precise context of this meeting is unknown it was likely the Zurich Seminar on Digital Communications: The speech is legendary in the field of cryptography, and for good reason.
Ultimately, Gordon uses Alice and Bob for their typical purpose: While Alice and Bob were born in the academic field of cryptology, they were soon being used in many other disciplines, domains, and contexts. In these articles, Alice and Bob already straddle the line between public key cryptography, rational choice theory, and logic.
In revised and re-published in , Joseph Y. Halpern and Michael O. As quantum computing and quantum cryptography begins to get discussed in the literature, Alice and Bob are again referenced for example, in Bennett et al.
