all keys can be brute-forced in about a day for a one-time hardware cost on the order of some new cards
- I suppose these "new cards" mean some FPGA Boards, which are quite costly. COPACOBANA costs about 10k$ and cracks DES in about 7 days. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 00:11, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
Why does this require a citation?
"An algorithm that has unknown weak keys does not inspire much trust." How does this require a citation? It seems like a pretty common sense idea to me. If there are unknown weak keys, then a user could accidentally pick a weak key which a knowledgeable attacker (to whom the weak keys aren't unknown) could take advantage of. Would it suffice to not have a citation if this sentence was rewritten with a less personal tone? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 19:13, 15 November 2016 (UTC)
