500 PS3s can crack this in less than a month.
A couple Teslas can crack it in a week.

Edit: For more accurate info see following post.

Anyone know any distributed projects working on cracking this puppy already?

You sure? I do know of a few individuals attempting it right now, but they are saying its all but hopeless. They are pretty much screaming that Assange be arrested so that he will blurt out the code.

Millions of people are watching intently and tens of thousands of people are trying to decrypt it.

I'm not gonna download it until it's either cracked or a key is released.

Even then, why would you waste 1.4 gig's of HDD space not knowing what it is, since if it's really that big, it will be all over the media soon enough.

I'm pretty confident that there are various hacking/cracking groups working around the clock at the moment to open up the data, i'll just wait for that to happen.

Until that moment is there i must say I'm pretty curious to see if it really is all that big, or if it's just something to keep the common wikileaks user occupied with since they have no means of decyphering the data? (for whatever reason that might be)

No matter on which "side" Mr Assange stands. We all should support him!

Why?

Because it's the spirit that comes with these actions. This will encourage other people in "secret" positions to get the truth out. No matter what his intentions are - HE DOES SUPPORT THE TRUTH MOVEMENT.

I believe this can become big.

Thumbs up. He will have my support! Period.

They release all these tons of files on Afghanistan and yet nothing about the Opium/Heroin Trade?? Nothing about who is really funding the Taliban insurgency??



Why would they need to release information that's been all over the MSM already?

Even the most die-hard Fox fans know this by now.

I tell you all what I think..

I think it's going to lead to the new American Revolution.. It. will. all. unravel.

Hell yeah mang. Excuse the language, just love talking tech with a techie. Have you seen Teslas raw computational performance? Or a Beowulf style PS3 cluster?




The Air Force is one example. The Air Force Research Laboratory in Rome, New York picked up 336 PS3 systems in 2009 and built itself a 53 teraFLOP processing cluster. Once completed as a proof of concept, Air Force researchers then scaled up by a factor of six and went in search of 2,200 more consoles (later scaled back to 1,700). The $663,000 contract was awarded on January 6, 2010, to a small company called Fixstars that could provide 1,700 160GB PS3 systems to the government.

Source: www.hackinthebox.org...

www.nvidia.com...



515 GigaFlops on Tesla C2050, M2050, and S2050 products


The PS3s cracked SSL certs. (Could you furnish the possibilities of SSL keys? I'm still looking for sources on it. The PS3 info is not widely publicized)
They're also currently working on cracking DNSSEC. Shouldn't take longer than a year brute forcing, less time if they can come up with some clever schemes (OpenSSL had a vuln where keys could be predicted).

It doesn't necessarily boil down to time. It's how many combinations can be calculated per cycle. How many cycles per clock can be achieved, how many clocks, and how many cores.

So if your numbers are geared for single core x86, then you turn that into say 10,000 GPU accelerated cores. You can vastly cut down decryption time.

The future of distributed encryption/decryption and computing is in grid-based gpu acceleration. Highly optimized cores ftw.

How did I miss this Mainstream Media revelation?

I don't believe you. I don't think that EVER hit the MSM frontpage.

Everything would have changed and the Gov't wouldn't be allowed to arrest you for it anymore if they finally admitted the truth.

That they, the US military, supplies and sells the heroin on the streets of the USA, then turns around and arrests users and fills our prisons up with junkies sucking away our tax $$$.

And NO, FOX did NOT ADMIT that NATO funds the Taliban secretly to keep the war going on perpetually and justify a continued presence there.

NONE of that was ever admitted.

And that is what I expect from a legit Afghanistan leak. Taliban drugs and money. Thats what I want to see declassified.

The US pharmaceutical addiction to opiates is what truly funds the war.

We send over US soldiers to fight the Taliban in Afghanistan.
In turn, warlords sell opium to the official government of Afghanistan.
Who in turn, then legally sell the opium to US pharmaceutical companies with a legal paper trail. Sustaining the American addiction to opiates. Which in turn, funds the warlords paying the Taliban who fight our soldiers.

This is the Military Industrial Complex, simple, and at it's finest.

Americans are supplying the soldiers fighting our own soldiers via proxy.

Good 'ol UCC, Trade Agreements, etc.

If you pour something from bottle to a straw glass what will you have? A leak!

I think it´s just funny link nothing more.

I for one will have the encrypted file before the end of the day.

[sarcasm]
Could somebody kill Julian Assange so the keys are released

[/sarcasm]

I think wikileaks will lead us into a world where true transparency exist and governments will have no choices but to play fair and give the right answers. And war is not an answer.

Edit : Those interrested in downloading the file. Wikileaks is overloaded right now (or under attack by 3 letters), get it from thepiratebay.org search "wikileaks insurance".

Think again. There is no better way to put cause a massive outrage of pro-government efforts to strangle uncensored use of the internet than this current situation. That could be the driving force here in letting him "get away" with what he is doing. He is playing their game, not the other way around.


That's what I am thinking as well. This "insurance" could just be a bluff. Now, Why make a pretense with insurance? If you know your ass is on the line you put it out. It makes you a hero, you become untouchable. Assange has been in the public eye for over a year and I'm being asked to believe the CIA couldn't snatch him? It would be all too easy for the man to be captured as well as his associates. This leads me to believe they are letting him do this. He may have some information he has gotten on his own, but I think he's being fed from the very people he's trying to expose. The Soros connection is a bit too much for me to stomach. Perhaps he knows all of this, it's more likely he doesn't know and it just being played.

As for me honoring the "spirit" of something as some are saying-That's like giving someone an A for effort. I don't do such things. I don't know their intent. They can say one thing for public consumption and do another entirely.

Just for your information, please note that every downloadable file on the Wikileaks's War Diary page is being served from the same "straw-glass-and-bottle" folder, not only the "insurance" one.

...__._/file/straw-glass-and-bottle/afg-war-diary.html...
...__._/file/straw-glass-and-bottle/afg-war-diary.csv...
...__._/file/straw-glass-and-bottle/afg-war-diary-nato...

But it is interesting nonetheless..

I've downloaded it but I cant open the file, I've used the 7zip program it suggested but all it says is: Can not open file as archive.

Mrryanbrown,

I think your right about the processing power etc. The amount of scientific institutions that are utilising gaming consoles power to perform calculations in astronomy etc. is phenomenal!

With regards to Afganistan though, take a look at the thread in my signature. I think it is all economic and if you look at this document you can see the whole blueprint to what the war is about:

War In Afghanistan Objectives and Instigators

Probably both.

The 'insurance' has the advantage of protecting themselves now, and future whistleblowers, so encouraging more to come forwards and tell what they know.

If the government makes a move against any of them, the insurance key get's published, and the files are revealed.

It must be big. Big enough that it check mates the entire US government and it's agencies.

Hopefully, the key can be released before the 'kill switch' is used, if it came to that.

ETA; Having said that, the so called US internet 'kill switch', would only be applicable in the US and territories...the key can be published anywhere in the world. It could even conceivably be printed in a newspaper, on leaflets and dropped from an aircraft if need be..so the kill switch wouldn't really stop the key getting out.

I would say it's important for as many people around the world to get the file and tuck it away somewhere though, in case a concerted effort is made to either wipe it out, or to introduce millions of fake files, containing all sorts to confuse what is real or what is fake...precisely what they do with ET's and UFO's/Energy now.

Interesting. Could 1.4 Gb of random data or it could be the real deal waiting to go.

It is either a bluff, or a computer virus. Since the folks at Wikileaks are radical, I am willing to wager that it is a little of both.
