For almost 7 years I've been working in algorithm creation for new encryption systems. I'll be the first to tell you that my goals are lofty and that it's no small task to make something worth using. With that in mind, is Crypto the place to ask about how implementations work or ask for clarifications on an existing algorithm's process?
Sample questions such as:
What attacks does this algorithm's technique defend against?
What is the benefit of this technique over this technique?
Some questions that may be on the edge of being subjective (but may need to be asked?) might include:
Is there an error in this implementation of this technique?
Will this optimization cause problems?
Basically any question that might include code. What's the limit on questions relating to new algorithm creation or techniques?
