hmm from p3
"For our scenarios we suppose that A and B (also known as Alice and Bob) are..."
doesn't sound to me like that is the first mentioning. If anyone has
other sources I'm open to more suggestions, wikipedia lead me to
something [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice_and_bob and
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_%26_Carol_%26_Ted_%26_Alice] but it
seems Ron Rivest wouldn't want us to call em
* Alice Henderson and
* Bob Sanders
martin (not so sure that is the best one could come up with but it
turns out there isn't much reference to something else)
PS: The Issue came up because I was tired of having only John and Jane
Doe's in a test system where I must enter a last name and since i like
to actually have some sense in the things i type i figured someone
