Brute Force (2005, Copernicus Books) is a book by Matt Curtin about cryptography.
Communications servers are open, standards-based computing systems that operate as a carrier-grade common platform for a wide range of communications applications and allow equipment providers to add value at many levels of the system architecture.
The Data Encryption Standard (DES) is a symmetric-key algorithm for the encryption of electronic data.
The DES Challenges were a series of brute force attack contests created by RSA Security to highlight the lack of security provided by the Data Encryption Standard.
distributed.net is a distributed computing effort that is attempting to solve large scale problems using otherwise idle CPU or GPU time.
The Personal System/2 or PS/2 was IBM's third generation of personal computers.
The Internet is the global system of interconnected computer networks that use the Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) to link devices worldwide.
An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is a numerical label assigned to each device connected to a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication.
Matt Curtin (born 1973) is a computer scientist and entrepreneur in Columbus, Ohio best known for his work in cryptography and firewall systems.
This article lists and discusses the usage and derivation of names of large numbers, together with their possible extensions.
The RSA Factoring Challenge was a challenge put forward by RSA Laboratories on March 18, 1991 to encourage research into computational number theory and the practical difficulty of factoring large integers and cracking RSA keys used in cryptography.
The RSA Secret-Key Challenge consisted of a series of cryptographic contests organised by RSA Laboratories with the intent of helping to demonstrate the relative security of different encryption algorithms.
RSA Security LLC, formerly RSA Security, Inc. and doing business as RSA, is an American computer and network security company.
Silicon Graphics, Inc. (later rebranded SGI, historically known as Silicon Graphics Computer Systems or SGCS) was an American high-performance computing manufacturer, producing computer hardware and software.
A supercomputer is a computer with a high level of performance compared to a general-purpose computer.
A SYN flood is a form of denial-of-service attack in which an attacker sends a succession of SYN requests to a target's system in an attempt to consume enough server resources to make the system unresponsive to legitimate traffic.
Usenet is a worldwide distributed discussion system available on computers.
