SHA-1 geknackt

Bruce Schneier schreibt in seinem Blog dass der Verschlüsselungs/Hash-Algorithmus SHA-1 gebrochen wurde. Das könnte lustig werden da gerade viele Leute SHA für Signaturen nutzen.
Das heisst nicht dass jeder dazu in endlicher Zeit in der Lage ist, SHA1 zu brechen. Aber durch Algorithmen ist es möglich, die Anzahl möglicher Kollisionenattacken die notwendig zum brechen sind, signifikant zu verringern; von 2^80 Versuchen auf 2^69.
Einer der Kommentare auf Bruces Blogseite beschreibt es recht gut:

That's 2**11 less operations. Let's say breaking this (2**69 ops) takes the NSA a week. If it had been 2**80, it would have taken 2048 weeks, or 39 years. If it would have taken the NSA (or whomever) a year to break SHA-1 before, it could be broken in 4 hours.


My guess would be it would still take a lot longer than a week - but would now be in the realm of possibility, whereas before it would have been in the lifetime(s) range. However, this is totally a wild-assed-guess, based on the assumption that it was expected to take 100+ years before this to crack.


Mal sehen was die Reaktionen darauf sein werden.
