    Saw a blurb about that today.. it's not anything new really, it's just the component level is now being marketed to regular consumers. I can't remember the brand name but there were 512/1gig video cards in about 2001-2002 as well.. you just had to pay 2-3k for them.

    The availability of high-end GPUs really has to make application designers and IT rethink the importance of security. GPU processing is now mainstream for any application which can exploit thread parallelism. There is also widespread use of GPU processing for brute-force password attacks. The age-old strategy for dealing with that is to simply make longer keys, which are more computationally expensive. Maybe someday TripleDES will be 666DES, but grandma's old Ipad isn't going to generate SSL session keys all that quickly.

    Business which persist encrypted passwords will have to be more vigilant about protecting them. There is currently a large demand for site credentials on the black market for the purposes of password cracking where the cracked accounts are sold by lots and used for everything from industrial espionage to credit card fraud.

    yep....more processors = more entry points.

    This is why everything needs 17-factor authentication.

    I suspect this is partly why multi-factor authentication is becoming so popular. Additionally, now that everyone has a smart phone, you don't need to hand out RSA keys to everyone.

    I work for a law firm, and a couple of our clients are now requiring us to enforce multi-factor authentication for anything coming in externally. This is most definitely a good thing, and since it is our clients requesting it, the IT department doesn't get the blame.

    When a complex password can be cracked in fifteen minutes by commonly available hardware, it makes all of us in IT paranoid.

    And then everyone will put their computers away and we will go back to paper.

    At least paper is not my responsibility to secure. That's the records department's bailiwick.
