Just started reading Dan Brown's Digital Fortress. If you haven't read it, Digital Fortress is the name of an encryption code that the NSA's
TRANSLTR can't break.
TRANSLTR is the name of the massive super computer used to decode encrypted e-mails. Most e-mails with 128bit encryption take I think like 2 mins to
crack or some figure in the low minutes.
Anyway, I don't know if TRANSLTR actual exists or not. What actual and confirmed systems does NSA, CIA, FBI (although with recent reports I would
doubt they have a super computer), or other agencies have, and what do they do.
A link to any articles would be really cool. I found some stuff on PBS and other sites but they were pretty weak.
I really only want confirmed stuff, no "they have this secret black project they deny exists" and whatnot. Of course, I guess they say even
comfirmed stuff doesn't exist don't they. Okay, just let me know of the stuff that is as close to completely comfirmed as possible. Preferably I'd
like NSA stuff but will take what I can get.
I couldn't find a thread will a limited topic like this, but feel free to trash this thread if there is one and I appologise in advance for wasting
