Introduction: This is just going to be a quick post detailing my personal preferences for documentation in the hope that it may help a few people get started with write-ups, and perhaps introduce you to some great software! We’ll start by looking at a couple of pieces of software (Cherrytree and Flameshot) which, frankly, I couldn’t recommend more; then briefly discuss a few tips for writeups and documentation as a whole. Let’s start with the software. Software: Cherrytree Cherrytree is…

Interestingly, it seems that an equivalent algorithm to RSA was created at GCHQ by James Ellis, Clifford Cocks, and Malcolm Williamson four years previously in 1973. I learnt the theory behind RSA encryption…
