Subject: Re: AES Bitslice and the PS3 MD5 cracking.

I saw the presentation, it is now claimed PS3 can compute 1.9 billion
calculations per second..

The presentation:
https://www.blackhat.com/presentations/bh-europe-08/Breese/Presentation/bh-eu-08-breese.pdf

The code: http://www.security-assessment.com/files/presentations/md5-spu-0.1.tar.gz

If this is all true, wouldn't it be great to see benchmarks for JTR on
PS3? - probably wouldn't be that difficult to port over.
