A well known security expert and cryptographer, Thomas H. Ptáček, once said:

"If You're Typing the Letters A-E-S Into Your Code You're Doing It Wrong".

Wait, what?!? Doesn't everyone use AES? Of course we do. Is AES broken? Nope. In this developer-oriented talk I'll explore the kinds of mistakes programmers commonly make when implementing cryptosystems; just how easily these problems can be exploited in the real world; and what Thomas meant by his statement.
