I have a question to experts about PGP or people, which have mentionable
Source about the security of PGP.
I am start to become busy with Security, Coding and PGP. So I am a
beginner of this topic.
I have two opinions.
One is readable under
"Here's what NetGuide has to say about PGP's uncrackable algorithms:
`There are special programs to crack encrypted e-mail, but PGP is
designed so that, by some estimates, a computer using 1 billion chips,
each far more powerful than any that exist today, would require 10
trillion years to try all possible combinations generated by just one
of the encryption algorithms used in PGP. There are other encryption
programs available, but as Zimmermann asks rhetorically, "Which has
the government most upset?' "
The other one is only a Information, which I got and says, that
"You can do using DNA structures. It's a method strictly
biological/chemical. One guy, using transformed equation from
informatic encription to biological structures like DNA, and prepared
other liquids, probably solutions, mixed them, and only solution
reacts. In two day he could find solutions for PDP key. The article was
in Polish, in "Software", but probably it was just translated
from DDJ (Dr somebody Journal - highly professional edition), about 1-2
Does anybody knows something exactly about this second source?
What I should know believe?
Both articles seems to be 1-2 years old, and in case of this
compareable. But how is the actual status of PGP, still euphorical?
Please send a copy of your post directly on my email-address.
Thanks for a discussion in advance.
