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 […]

Car Immobilisers Using Weak Encryption Schemes

Another case of a certain industry lagging behind, I mean come-on – who seriously still using proprietary cryptography algorithms in 2010? Especially only 40 or 48-bit protocols, with the processing power available on hand now and new techniques like GPU based cracking – that just doesn’t cut it. The latest discovery of such implementations was […]
