<nettime> A5/1 Crack

     [orig to <cypherpunks {AT} cyberpass.net>; 'lack of security' 
      is the polite way of saying 'intentionaly crippled to
      facilitate surveillance'--tb]

"A Pedagogical Implementation of A5/1," by Marc Briceno,
Ian Goldberg, and David Wagner.


"With COMP128 broken and A5/1 published below, we will
now turn our attention to A5/2. The latter has been acknowledged
by the GSM community to have been specifically designed by
intelligence agencies for lack of security."
