Researchers Use PS3 Cluster to Reveal an Internet Security Flaw

400°
312w ago - Update: Verisign says it's stopped using MD5, as of around noon Pacific time. To quote:

"We're disappointed that these researchers did not share their results with us earlier," writes Tim Callan, "but we're happy to report that we have completely mitigated this attack."

Is there anything the PlayStation 3 console can't do? From [Register or Login to view links] to simulating [Register or Login to view links]... and now breaking Internet security?!

A team of researchers from the U.S., Switzerland and the Netherlands have found a way of bypassing the security of digital certificates provided by companies like Verisign. These digital certificates help transmit your credit card information on the Internet in a secure manner.

By using 200 PS3 systems linked together, researchers were able to do the math that helped them decrypt the MD5 hash that's used by Verisign.

325w ago - It is commonly known that Nvidia showed a Bugatti Veyron at the Full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 running a 30 fps - inclusive anti aliasing and the multiple refractions common in ray tracing.

Unfortunately this requires a Quadro-Plex 2100 D4 with four G92 based GPUs to be calculated.

Now there is additional material available in an Nvidia presentation. Here not only pure ray tracing is introduced, but also examples for Hybrid rendering, like mixing rasterisation and ray tracing.

The developers of the Nvidia demo themselves say that both systems are used. Additional info can be found at Nvidia's developers' site.
