I am trying to come up with some creative topics for my information systems security class to write a essay/research paper. My first thoughts were encryption as I find it very interesting, and have read about it a lot in the past but I'm not sure if there is enough material in the encryption spectrum to write a research paper.

The research paper is geared towards how I either agree or disagree with the topic I choose.

Any ideas?

The ideal of seeing encrypted data without decrypting it is interesting. It does has its purpose for systems to inspect or user to search while data is protected form but at the same time we do not want to make it totally "plain" losing its confidentiality. How do we reconcile that - crypt key algorithm is flawed? or just purely needed to re-architecture to reveal the less critical bits but sufficient enough to still meet the business needs. I don't think security by obscurity would be a good option :)
