On the weakness of security through obscurity:
"Si un système exigeant le secret se trouvait entre les mains d'un trop grand nombre d'individus, il pourrait être compromis à chaque engagement auquel l'un ou l'autre d'entre eux prendrait part."
(If a [cryptographic] system requiring a secret [algorithm] finds itself in the hands of too many individuals, it could be compromised at each engagement to which one or the other among them takes part.)
- Auguste Kerckhoffs, 1883
