Matasano Crypto Challenges 1

2014-09-09

Working with big data is great and there's a lot of interesting problem, but as someone who started programming with C and is interested in computer security it gets a little fatiguing to just look at pig scripts and java / scala all day. In order to remedy this I've started the matasano crypto challenges, which I'm using C for of course.

I'm putting all my solutions on my github, I've only completed the first one so far (converting hex to base64, super easy) and I'm hoping to try to do one a week, at least for the first set anyways which are all basic.
