I'm certainly tired of seeing Alice and Bob every time I read about encryption and data security. So yeah, let's have Sally and Bob for a while. Or maybe Sally and Ted?

Alice and Bob? Hmm. Figures.
At least Sally called.

No, it must be Alice and Bob, with evil Eve the eavesdropper and evil Mallet the man in the middle.

You think cryptographers could follow the discussion if you changed the names? These guys are all off in heavy Mathematical land, you can't change the terms.

Mallet? I remember it as Mallory. Or possibly Malcolm. These evil hackers really need to stop naming themselves "mal" something. I means, it's a dead giveaway isn't it?
