Pocketblock: Simple encryption tutorials

The Pocketblock logo.

Recently I found a project that aims to explain cryptography and encryption in a simple fashion through this Ars Technica article. The repository is called Pocketblock and is being created by an insanely clever guy called Justin Troutman. Initially the repository didn't have anything in it (which was confusing to say the least), but now that the first guide of sorts has been released I'd like to take the time to recommend it here.

The first article explains an encryption algorithm called 'Pockenacci', an encryption algorithm that is from the same family as AES. It's a great start to what I hope will be an awesome series! If you're interested in encryption or interested in getting into encryption, you should certainly go and check it out.
