Congratulations. So one can only hope that the computing power of the "Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnologie" is again available when it's required for the more important brute forcing of RSA 1024  RSA 2048, and that the nontrivial modifications of the existing software is made quickly!

To check if there's been a transcription error in the number? Such an error would usually result in a number with a small factor. A few seconds checking for 15 digit factors could save a lot of wasted time. Chris K

know the procedure. And what is the difference between those cranks that I see regularly who frequently claim that they have discovered something without any proof? My family is under severe financial crisis. If I go to USA to do research, who will pay the flight expenses, who will manage my family since research is less paid, where will I get money to live? The cost of living at USA is too high. I am just at first year of MS in Computer Science and Engineering. Next year only are the projects, and then only Ph.D. Then only I can have opportunity to do research... Can you tell me at what age you published your first paper? I am just 22 years old. This gives me more lifetime to do research. For your information, I got Ph.D offer at Chennai Mathematical Institute. They offered admission after 1 year of M.Sc? Couldn't I have joined it? They do research on Automata Theory, Graph Theory, Probability, Computer Algorithms, Data Structures, etc. But I am more focused towards Abstract Algebra, Topology, Group Theory, Modern Algebra, Galois Theory, Number Theory, etc. Remember that Number Theory is not the only area of mathematics. Studying regularly about Integer Factorization and Primality Testing makes me feel inferior that I only know about that topic, nothing else, just simply factoring an integer into its prime factors, a simple concept... There are many more areas as well... Linear Programming, Linear Algebra, Laplace and Fourier Transforms, Multi dimensional geometry, vector calculus, advanced trigonometry... much more to be learnt about. Regarding implementation of algorithms... I have already done atleast some work in the past. The initial implementations will be very crude and slow... There are lots, lots and lots of optimizations to be worked upon. And then I do not understand most of the notations that are being given within the books. Implementing all these advanced algorithms takes a lot of time. Were they all developed only within a day?

In about a year and a half, it will start: a post here or there as to how quiet things have been, and that someone is likely up to something. Some of these remarks will come from those actually working on the code for filtering or linear algebra: "Nope. Haven't heard a peep; some big factorization might be in the works, but I'm damned if I know what it is." Then, at some point in early 2015, one of the participants will post the results here.

Discussion of tamperresistant crypto hardware has been moved to the Hardware subforum (not directly related to how big an RSA key I need...)
