Acceptable Military Risks from Accidental Detonation of Atomic Weapons: That link takes you to my comments on the 1957 Sandia report of that title, obtained under a FOIA request by Eric Schlosser, author of the acclaimed 2013 book, Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety.

The 1994 Agreed Framework That link takes you to a copy of the original, signed document, and this link goes to a searchable version. The 1994 Agreed Framework was a nuclear agreement we had with North Korea that, among other things, prevented them from accessing their plutonium stockpile. They did not do their first nuclear test until 2006, four years after Pres. Bush tore up the agreement over an alleged violation. For details, see the North Korea section of A New Map for Relationships: Creating True Love at Home & Peace on the Planet. A PDF can be downloaded for free. This document was obtained from the Hoover Institution Archives by Ms. Jooeun Kim, who as of June 2017 is a doctoral candidate at Georgetown University and was until recently a visiting MacArthur fellow at Stanford's Center for International Security and Cooperation.

Results of an Initial Attempt to Cryptanalyze the NBS Data Encryption Standard M. Hellman, R. Merkle, R. Schroeppel, L. Washington, W. Diffie, S. Pohlig, and P. Schweitzer, Technical Report SEL 76-042, September 9, 1976 (revised November 10, 1976). I scanned the only copy I had of this classic. The "Bates numbers" (e.g., CYL STNAN MH 000747 on the lower right of the first page) are due to its being copied in the Cylink-RSA patent fight.
