The first ten years of public-key cryptography

W. Diffie
1988 Proceedings of the IEEE  
Equally important is the impact of public key cryptography on the theoretical side of communication security.  ...  Although diverse systems were proposed early on, the ones that appear both practical and secure today are all very closely related and the search for new and different ones has met with little success.  ...  Rather than selecting one of the puzzles to solve, he must solve on average half of them.  ...
