WASHINGTON, DC -- In a carefully phrased, 128-bit encoded announcement
that has challenged U.S. security agency procedures, top officials of
the National Cryptography and Information Security Council warned that
"FrpX-K5jE-Oc4n-e5Dn" if "Ha4d-87gH-uiH3-gB5r-g8Bh" late Monday.
"It may be true, as these codemakers have stated here, that our nation
faces 'm7Hk-sJkd-jJk73-4osd-m6Kh,'" Department of Homeland Security head
Michael Chertoff told reporters in his plaintext response Tuesday. "But
in our defense, I would hardly call our situation 'K5jE-Oc4n.'"
The NCISC declined further comment, saying only that its remarks were
meant as constructive criticism, and the CIA, NSA, and FBI may have
misinterpreted the message.
