Do you think they can? If so how? Bruteforcing? And what about intelligence agencies outside the US, such as in the UK for example.
Ive been reading quite a few books recently about the matter, and most assume that the government can brute force such algorithms quite quickly now rendering them useless, and was just wondering if you guys think theres any truth in that....

I designed this technology to end this bullsh&* practice of "pretending" to not be able to crack encryption codes greater than 1024 bits long within a few days and will enjoy seeing the chaos ensue when governments can no longer access a private persons records...

Making those claims just makes the rewards for the crackers all the more sweet when they pull of what was claimed to be impossible.
