Use Cryptography; Don't Learn It

Presentation from Swift and Fika conference.

We talked about securing data, and about mistakes developers make when they are trying to use encryption. And what they actually want from cryptography: they want high level functions, they want easy to use instruments that just works. They want boring crypto. But in a real world we have different levels of paranoia: from Faraday cage to hardware and software solutions. We named three layers of software solutions: boxed, crypto-systems and crypto-libs. And how to select which one to use. And about Edisson lamp as an example of boring, but working system.
