The exact print source is unknown. The etext appears to be based on the translation by Margaret Hunt called Grimm's Household Tales, but it is not identical to her edition. (Some of the translations are slightly different, the arrangement also differs, and the Grimm's scholarly notes are not included.) The etext received by the Universal Library did not include story titles. They have been restored in this edition, based on Hunt's titles.

NEW: There is now a more accurate version of the Hunt translation posted by William Barker.

There are many aspects to security and many applications, ranging from secure commerce and payments to private communications and protecting passwords.
