|RC5-64 contest: Half-time! (Update)|
The Amiga RC5 team participates now for four years in this worldwide contest to crack a 64 bit key. That requires calculating up to 18,4 trillion possible keys. Half of the total key count has now been calculated. The Amiga RC5 team did not get lucky after 1331 days, but are currently advancing 2,5 times faster than the average for the first half, and chances of finding the key before the whole keyspace is searched are progressively getting better and better.
The Amiga RC5 team is on rank 7 of thousands of teams and has more than 2500 participants with more than 5000 computers. Read the entire press release for more details. (ps)
