MemComputing’s paper following a demonstration to the DoD of RSA being breakable in real time.Is it too good to be true? Someone smarter than me translate https://quantumzeitgeist.com/quantum-inspired-memcomputing-says-rsa-2048-can-be-broken-in-real-time/https://arxiv.org/pdf/2309.08198.pdf
>>15753979>generated RSA-like benchmark biprimesDoes it work on the ones they didn't generate themselves?
>>15753979this kind of thing probably already exists at the NSA
>>15753979Of course they are going to cherry pick primes for maximum shocking effect. Despite that this shows the power of computing architectures that are nondeterministic Turing machines. Unlike quantum computers they are already here and kicking ass.
>>15753979It's so over for public key authentication Passwords are so back, baby
>The technology, part of a USAF Phase II SBIR (military proposal), has demonstrated the ability to solve 300+ bit products of two primes in emulation mode. The company forecasts that when scaled up and implemented as an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC), RSA 2048 could be broken in real-time.

Unless, of course, letting the public know of a vulnerability served their interests. Either because China/Russia knew about it or to discredit a popular algorithm so they can propose/influence the one that replaces it. For whatever reason they would do the latter, I truly do not know. “It is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key.”
>>15753979Irrelevant. In current year you should be using 4096 bit keys.
>>15755140tell that to your bank
I don't need encryption because I have nothing to hide.
Who here remembers soap bubble computing?
>>15753979The NSA published a pamphlet in I think December last year, pressing finished too switch to post-quantum crypto ASAP. Now you know why.
>>15755378what's wrong with hiding nothing under there layers of encryption?
>>15755878>For now, quantum computers are confined to cool rooms close to absolute zero (-273 degrees Celsius) This is incorrect. Photonic and NV-center diamonds exist. Who writes this crap?
>>15755908>Who writes this crap?these days? high chances it's chatgpt
>>15756103I do. Didn't know they already implemented this. Thanks!
