I found the following quote on the site http://www.nd.edu/~cmonico/eccp109/

"There will most likely be an effort soon to solve the ECC2-109 challenge,
but I am not coordinating it. I simply don't have the time to do another
one right now. However, the effort should begin sometime in the near future
- I did write the source code and pass it on to a well-known group who will
most likely undertake that challenge."



Could that "well-known group" eventually have anything to do with the RC5
team?

Does anyone have a better guess?
