Also, there are some other schemes. The military uses a scheme which can
crack a lesser generation 128-bit crypt in approx. 25 minutes. (the gov
thinks only the US mil has this technology so it likes the DES-56 for
I've heard that it uses some sort of neural net + fuzzy logic in
determining key probabilities, and testing the keys that are calculated
to have a high probability of being correct.
