Subject [OT] ECC breaker gives money to ASF.. or FSF?
Date Wed, 05 Apr 2000 04:55:32 GMT

"Certicom's ECC2k-108 Elliptic Curve Discrete Logarithm challenge has been
broken! This was the largest public calculation ever to use a complex
parallel algorithm. $5,000 dollars in winnings will be donated to the Free
Software Foundation. Congratulations to everyone who participated, including
team Slashdot! " There seems to be conflicting versions of info about the
prize money - some says 8,000 to the Apache Foundation, others say 5,000 to
the FSF.
