Time Nick Message 03:36 pdurbin RSA Key Extraction via Low-Bandwidth Acoustic Cryptanalysis: http://www.cs.tau.ac.il/~tromer/acoustic/ 03:37 pdurbin "The attack can extract full 4096-bit RSA decryption keys from laptop computers (of various models), within an hour, using the sound generated by the computer during the decryption of some chosen ciphertexts." 15:44 whorka that's like TEMPEST level snooping 15:49 jgtimmer sounds like van eyck freaking to me 15:50 jgtimmer Van Eck phreaking* 15:50 sagotsky :-D 15:53 whorka http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Van_Eck_phreaking#See_also 15:54 whorka first time I learned of this kind of snopping was back in the days when modems had RX/TX LEDs on the front 15:54 whorka apparently you could reconstruct bytes from careful measurement of their timing 15:55 whorka *snooping :P 15:56 whorka it's like shoulder-surfing writ large 18:57 pdurbin TEMPEST? 19:27 whorka follow the link ^^ 19:35 pdurbin oh. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TEMPEST . thanks 20:57 * JoeJulian grumbles at Rackspace... 21:06 JoeJulian Turns out that with the "next gen" service, you cannot retrieve your own images. Guess I'll be shopping for a new provider. :( 22:57 pdurbin next gen?
