An Ongoing Battle
The most current war between cryptographers and cryptanalysts, in my opinion, has to do with the internet. Computer scientists are constantly creating codes to protect websites and online customer's personal information. At the same time, thieves and crooks are breaking down this software and accessing top secret information which allows them to steal people's identities. It is an ongoing battle, and hopefully the brilliant minds of the good guys will prevail. Until then, be very careful of what you put online. You never know who's breaking through internet security and accessing "protected" information!
