|distributed.net Faq-O-Matic : Project: DES (Data Encryption Standard)
The DES algorithm is available in many places on the web. Not least
because it is an ANSI standard: ANSI X9.52
This collection includes pointers to the algorithms used by the d.net client (BrydDES and Kwan). One bitslicer not included in that list is from Andrew Meggs - the source to that in the d.net client source ( http://www.distributed.net/source/)
A bibliography on DES (and other block-cypher related) material is at http://www.ii.uib.no/~larsr/bc.html
For a general overview on crypto, I suggest you try and get
the book "Applied Cryptography" by Bruce Schneier.
