The NSA has said it knew about the algorithm before R, S and A discovered
it. That's all. And if we accept that Wikipedia and blogs are not the
ultimate thruth, then the next question must be: where do *you* get the
information from on which your claims are based, and what makes you
think it is more reliable ?

True, you can't prove it. But there is lots of evidence that it is hard.
Factoring products of primes isn't an isolated problem. If it can be done
efficiently then lots of other problems instantly become trivial as well,
and/or vice versa. None of those has been cracked.

Doesn't mean a thing. This happens when the bubble has been reduced to
a few micrometers at most. The amount of heat (which is not the same
as temperature) is quite small.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
