An international team of scientists from EPFL (Switzerland), INRIA (France), NTT (Japan), CWI (The Netherlands) and Bonn University (Germany), has obtained the prime factors of the RSA challenge number RSA-768, using the Number Field Sieve. The calculation took less than 2000 core years on modern CPUs. Extrapolating the trend from previous records in this area (512-bit in 1999, 663-bit in 2005, and the current 768-bit in 2009), it is reasonable to expect that 1024-bit keys will exhibit a...

Dutch scientists say they have cracked the so-called McEliece encryption system -- a candidate to provide security during the age of quantum computing. Researchers at the Eindhoven University of Technology said the attack succeeded by means of a large number of linked computers. Professor Tanja Lange and doctoral student Christiane Peters, together with Professor Daniel Bernstein of the University of Illinois, discovered a way to speed up attacks against the 30-year-old McEliece...

Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in The Netherlands have managed to crack the so-called McEliece encryption system. This system is a candidate for the security of Internet traffic in the age of the quantum computer - the predicted superpowerful computer of the future. The attack succeeded this month by means of a large number of linked computers throughout the world, says TU/e professor Tanja Lange. Earlier this year she and her PhD student Christiane Peters, together...
