Crypto Done Right

The Crypto Done Right project was started by Dr. Seth Nielson thanks to a generous grant from Cisco to Johns Hopkins while he led advanced research projects there.
The purpose is to establish a knowledge base of actionable cryptography facts and guides to help managers, IT staff, and developers to choose cryptography that is appropriate for their use-case.

The project is open source, allowing the cryptography community to contribute (reviewed) content and keep topics up to date.
