    Some of us already thought about NSA, surveillance and supercomputers and development of such.
    But actually our ability to make proper statements is based on assumptions and approximations and mathematical probabilities when it came to the question: "What actually can 'they' read / decrypt, what tech do they have / do they develop?"

    This is actually the best article that has got info about the power of the ASIC, what already has been built and leaked by Snowden and what has leaked recently, the cooperation with IBM, the relation of WindsorGreen and WindsorBlue.

    If you want to update your mind this article is a must read. :)

    Enjoy.

    This question is obsolete when you know the purpose of an ASIC. :)
    No, of course not....furthermore the article unveils what people who are familiar with probabilities already knew.

    'They' actually can do nothing except they have cooperators which grant a backdoor at their OS / soft.
    A 4096 bit key is far away from being cracked by BF attack.

    Well it seemed Norway has been interested in Steelwinter (based on windsorblue) 2014 (3 years ago)....

    I guess quantum computer is their future dream...in the meantime they improve their ASICs and make cooperations with IT companies to get their backdoors installed.

    for sure very scary stuff...theirs nothing out their encrypted thats 100% secure...if the NSA wants it they will crack it....the only true privacy left is whats in your head and soon the way the power of computing is going they will jack u up to a machine and read whats in your head. great article:eek:
