Also relevant is Schneier's post from 2007 entitled The Strange Story of Dual_EC_DRBG:

We don't know where the constants came from in the first place. We only know that whoever came up with them could have the key to this backdoor. And we know there's no way for NIST -- or anyone else -- to prove otherwise.

Now elliptic curve crypto is to be avoided? I'm so confused. Does that mean BlackBerry is worth less?
