OK, Vishal... I _finally_ have a few cycles that I can contribute to the
'OWASP-07000 Cryptography' section.  However, what I don't see
is the "old content" that we are supposed to be *recycling*. I'm
looking specifically sections under:

So did it move somewhere else? Sorry I've not been involved in this as I
could have been--the documentation that I've been writing has been more
specific to ESAPI, as well as working on the ESAPI crypto code. But I now
have 3 weeks of vacation so I hope to be able to spend about 8-10 hrs on
this effort. Only the main page seems to be filled in at all. I recall
that someone (Michael Howard, I think) had written the previous crypto
section to the OWASP Dev Guide, but I don't see that content anywhere on
the Wiki.

There was also some suggestions / additions that I had related to the
crypto section of ASVS that are not yet in that standard which I think
should eventually make its way there (in some form or another) as well
as eventually getting into some version of the OWASP Dev Guide. But first
things first.
