COPACOBANA und RIVERYA Spezialclustersysteme


COPACOBANA COPACOBANA, the cost optimized parallel code breaker, is an FPGA-based machine optimized to run cryptographic algorithms. COPACOBANA is suitable for parallel computation problems that require low communication. Breaking DES is exactly such a problem: a complete key search of the Data Encryption Standard (DES) does not take longer than one week on average on the COPACOBANA. Other ciphers can also be attacked and the COPACOBANA can also be used outside of cryptography for parallel problems.

On this page you will find additional information about COPACOBANA.
