A link collection I wrote. It is several years old, so likely has some
dead links,
but might serve as a starting point:
http://www.freeswan.org/freeswan_trees/freeswan-2.06/doc/web.html#crypto.link

A couple of classic papers:

Ross Anderson, Cambridge prof, on "How Cryptosystems Fail"
http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/users/rja14/wcf.html

Ken Thompson's Turing Award speech "Reflections on Trusting Trust"
http://www.acm.org/classics/sep95/

One book you must read is Bruce Schneier's "Secrets and Lies".
Follow with Anderson's "Security Engineering" if you want to go
deeper.
