Books with DES Source Code


As a few people have requested, here’s my current bibliography of DES source code listings found in various widely published books or magazines. Note that I have explicitly excluded the dozens of books and publications that merely *describe* the DES algorithm — even descriptions complete enough to use as a basis for implementation. They don’t count because, as we all know, only Americans are smart enough to turn an algorithm description into C code (or so our government believes.)

Additions or corrections to this list are welcome. Again, I’m only interested in actual code listings. –Phil
