A Comparison of Interactive Key Software

While there are two key players in the current interactive key playing field, namely Delta/Intkey and Lucid, there are a myriad of other tools available for users to choose from depending on their needs. While Lucid and Intkey will cover most peoples needs there are a number of factors that need to be taken into account when choosing the right tool for the job.

In this talk I will try to introduce the principals behind interactive keys and the different methods that are available. I will cover Lucid and Delta/Intkey in some depth. I will then cover a number of the other interactive key tools available out there and will finish off with some recent developments and promising tools that are coming available including the IdentifyLife project.
