as of 00:00 GMT 10/19/97 the three rc5-56 efforts have tested
over 50% of the 2^56 keys.
here's the calculation:
bovine 46.4476% tested
Cyberian 5.0086% tested
Infinite Monkeys 1.6181% tested
Bovine tested 6% of the keyspace below 70000000000000
as a contigous block then switched to testing randomly
Cyberian is testing contigously starting with 70000000000000
and testing upward
Infinite monkeys is testing contigously starting with
FFFFFFFFFFFFFF and testing downward
Cyberian and IM have no overlap so a total of
5.0086% + 1.6181% = 6.6267% have been tested by the two
Bovine tested 46.4476% - 6% randomly = 40.4476%
40.4476% random * 6.6267% (Cyberian+IM) = 2.6803% duped keys
or 3.9464% unduped keys
so 3.9464% (Cyb + IM Unduped)+ 46.4476% (bovine)
= 50.3940% tested
