This is the opening video from RSA Conference. Theme: Leon Battista Alberti was an illustrious mind of the Renaissance period whose scientific and cultural influence surpassed his brief life span. A painter, poet, philosopher, musician, architect and "Father of Western Cryptology", Alberti invented the first published polyalphabetic cipher in 1466. His cipher disk contained two alphabets, one on a fixed outer ring, and the other on a rotating disk, and is the cipher design to which most of today's systems of cryptography belong: polyalphabetic substitution. Alberti's polyalphabetic cipher was, at least in principle, the most significant advance in cryptography since Julius Caesar's time and marked a great stride forward in cryptology.

Architetto, scrittore, matematico, umanista, crittografo, linguista, filosofo, musicista e archeologo,fu una delle figure artistiche più poliedriche del Rinascimento. Un suo costante interesse era la ricerca delle regole, teoriche o pratiche, in grado di guidare il lavoro degli artisti.

It can be postulated from Alberti's writings that this cipher device may have been created for high level secret use within the Vatican. The Alberti Cipher Disk was invented by the famous Italian scholar Leon Battista Alberti in 1467. Alberti was an amazingly brilliant Renaissance genius whose talents covered a wide range of fields. He was a renowned architect, a dedicated linguist, a poet, a priest, a philosopher, A lawyer, an astounding mathematician, an engineer, author, astronomer, a master horseman, and a cryptographer!

Scrivete qualche commento!!..mamma mia che casino al alberti di rimini
Lecture date: 1997-11-14 Arguably the most passionate work ever written about architecture, the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili details its hero’s romantic love for buildings. The book charts the hero’s attempts to make love with the objects of his desire - attempts which have the effect, for the hero and the buildings alike, of sheer erotic ecstasy. In this lecture Liane Lefaivre argues that the answer to the text’s incomprehensible Joycean ‘Joysprikean’ prose and its title lies in the hitherto undisclosed identity of its author, claimed by Lefaivre to be Leon Battista Alberti. Liane Lefaivre, formerly a researcher at the Technical University of Delft, is Professor of History and Theory of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna. She is the author of the award-winning book Le...
