I agree with you most heartily. Cryptography is a tricky business. There is a risk of catastrophic failure if you do not have someone who actually understands the stuff. It is worth remembering that unlike many aspects of applications people go through concerted effort to make one’s encryption less than effective.

The hacking of DVDs via software or magic marker is a classic example.
