Sources of power for brute force
- Dedicated crypto-hardware
- Re-programmable hardware
- The web
Special Purpose Hardware
- Breaking enigma code
Lots of stuff in this lecture that is just random background; stuff about cracking RC5 and DES using the web mass-computing stuff.
Forget Brute Force. Quantum Computing can do everything in parallel. However there’s a catch; you can only look at one result; the state ‘collapses’ in a manner consistent to the observation.
