Mobile Architecture for Distributed Brute-Force Attacks
Keywords:brute-force attack, distributed computing, smartphones
AbstractThe focus of this paper centers on demonstrating that a distributed brute-force search of even a medium key-sized cryptosystem’s keyspace is possible even using the increasingly present mobile devices, although not quite practical yet, except for extremely well-funded groups. It is also an operational model that also aims to be an explicit documentation source for building a distributed architecture involving a server and any number of mobile agents, as well as highlighting both the advantages and the drawbacks of executing such an algorithm on smartphones.
