Key strategy[edit]

Is this a symmetric-key algorithm, or does it use public-key cryptography? -- Beland (talk) 17:03, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

Attacks on A5/1 as used in GSM[edit]

Hello,

The link http://reflextor.com/trac/a51/wiki is dead, it might be a good idea to cite on of the pages linked here instead: https://srlabs.de/decrypting_gsm/ .

Also, I don't think that the A5/1 Cracking Project was announced at black hat 2009. The schedule can be seen here: https://www.blackhat.com/html/bh-usa-09/bh-usa-09-schedule.html . I think that the first annoucement was at HAR2009: http://www.cs.virginia.edu/~kn5f/pdf/090815.HAR.A51.Cracking.pdf .
