We would like to thank the following people:
Paul Le Roux for making his E4M source code available. TrueCrypt 1.0 was derived from E4M and some parts of the E4M source code are still incorporated in the latest version of the TrueCrypt source code.
Dr. Brian Gladman, who wrote the excellent AES, Twofish, and SHA-512 routines.
Peter Gutmann for his paper on random numbers, and for creating his cryptlib, which was the source of parts of the random number generator source code.
Wei Dai, who wrote the Serpent and RIPEMD-160 routines.
Mark Adler et al., who wrote the Inflate routine.
The designers of the encryption algorithms, hash algorithms, and the mode of operation:
Horst Feistel, Don Coppersmith, Walt Tuchmann, Lars Knudsen, Ross Anderson, Eli Biham, Bruce Schneier, David Wagner, John Kelsey, Niels Ferguson, Doug Whiting, Chris Hall, Joan Daemen, Vincent Rijmen, Carlisle Adams, Stafford Tavares, Phillip Rogaway, Hans Dobbertin, Antoon Bosselaers, Bart Preneel, Paulo S.
