I really do like the Cryptography StackExchange, but as long as I know requesting references is not allowed. I was wondering whether any form of reference request is accepted?
The point is that, there are plenty of people here that are experienced with cryptography, and are doing research too. And many that are new to the research part, and are trying to find the right references (papers/books/articles) to read. For example, I started developing interest about leakage-resilient cryptography, but unfortunately, I don't know where to start, and how to proceed. Simply, I don't know which papers to read, and I don't know where to request reference. Yes, one can always Google, and it will provide huge amount of papers and stuff, but you just can't start with any paper. It's good to start in one area with the initial works, or some survey papers, and then build up into the more specific things that interest you, and this kind of guideline can only be provided by already experienced people, offering references and path. This reference request works quite fine in MathOverflow, where I have seen many questions where people ask about references.
So, to sum it up, what would be a way to request references about certain field of cryptography in this site?
