So this is a pretty interesting acoustic based cryptanalysis side-channel attack which can crack 4096-bit RSA encryption. It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything hardware based, and RSA 4096 is pretty strong encryption, I wonder how they figured this one out. It makes sense though when you think about it, although I wouldn’t have [...]

Mediggo is an opensource cryptanalysis library. This library implements generic cryptanalysis techniques to detect weak or insecure cryptosystems or learn and practice with cryptanalysis. This library is open source (LGPL licence) and written in C programming language. Samples and test cases are provided with each techniques: the solution is not always given to make people [...]
A paper about cracking SHA-1 originally surfaced in 2005, from a fairly reputable scientific source in China, it was widely publicised nor talked about much. But then recently, just last month China managed to make a wave out of it, almost 2 years after the initial ‘report’. It was even Slashdotted on January 20th 2007, [...]
