Lexta writes with an interesting tidbit from IEEE Spectrum: “‘Karsten Nohl, chief research scientist with H4RDW4RE, a Sunnyvale, Calif.-based security research firm, is mounting what could be the most ambitious attempt yet to compromise the GSM phone system.’ The intended approach is to create an open source project to spread the computation of a giant look-up table across more than 80 machines. Interestingly, they’ve openly stated that nVidia’s CUDA technology will be used to execute parallel elements of the problem on GPUs as well.”
