Gov't not fond of Wikileaks
« on: August 07, 2010, 02:04:29 PM »
And it looks like there's not much they can do about it

Seems the whistleblowers are not US citizens and have used 256 bit encryption on the files.  In order to break the code:

Quote
If it takes 0.1 nanosecond to test one possible key and you had 100 billion computers to test the possible number variations, "it would take this massive array of computers 1056 seconds -- the number 1, followed by 56 zeros" to plow through all the possibilities, said Lin.

How long is that?

"The age of the universe is 1017 seconds," explained Lin.


IOW, it ain't gonna happen before lunch.
