The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

Scientists crack code, raising the bar for digital security

A group of scientists, including several mathematicians in Amsterdam, has set a new record in digital code-cracking.

The group of mathematical scientists succeeded in factoring a 232-digit number into two prime quotients, each 116 digits long. The feat constitutes a new world record, shattering the last one set five years ago when a number 200 digits long was factored into primes.

The international group of scientists, which includes mathematicians working for the Centre for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI) in Amsterdam, has presented a paper describing its feat to the online periodical Cryptology for publication.

Prime numbers are numbers only divisible by one and themselves. They play a crucial role in protecting digital information. Secure connections commonly used in electronic banking depend on them. So called RSA-cryptography, named after its inventors, (Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir and Leonard Adleman) works with large numbers that are the product of two primes.

How prime numbers are used in codes

The number 15 is a good example of a figure that can easily be factored into two primes: 3 and 5. The larger a number gets however, the more difficult it is to determine whether this number can be factored into primes and, if so, which primes it factors into. So far, no one has discovered a quick mathematical solution to this so-called ‘factorisation problem’.

The difficulty in finding out the prime quotients is the foundation of RSA-cryptography. In RSA, the product of two large prime numbers is used as a public security key to encode information, but anybody looking to break the code needs to know its secret prime quotients to do so. These can only be discovered by factoring the number into primes and that is only possible through the use of brute computational force.

To determine the reliability of digital security protocols, mathematicians are constantly trying to factor larger numbers into their constituent primes using ever larger supercomputers. Their approach basically consists of multiplying two large primes until they have been able to confirm the number under scrutiny is the product of two prime factors. A normal personal computer would need 1,700 years to reconstitute the 232-digit number into primes.

By pooling the processing capacity of hundreds of fast computers, the mathematicians were able to unveil the secrets of RSA-768 (a 232-digit decimal equals 768 digital bits) in two and a half years.

Old RSA-codes no longer safe

The 768-bit key that has now been hacked is currently used only for encrypting information that need only remain secret for a few weeks. Even so, cracking it is no cakewalk. Anybody intent on deciphering it would require computing capacity equal to that the scientists had at their disposal.

Sensitive information which needs to remain secret for longer periods of time, credit card information for instance, is coded using 1,024 bit keys (309-decimal digits). These have not been cracked yet and are considered to be safe –for the time being. “Cracking these codes requires a thousand times more computational power,” said Herman te Riele, a scientist working for the CWI involved in the cracking of the RSA-768 code. “Ten years ago, we cracked a 512-bit code. Five years back, we did a 663-bit one. You need approximately a thousand times more computational power for each 256 additional bits. We hope to crack a 1024-bit code in the next ten years. 768-bit codes should not really be used any more. Ten years from now, 1.280-bit codes should have become the standard.”
