jamie from Slashdot reports about the Manila Bulletin‘s and ZDNet Asia‘s article on a Pinoy math enthusiast finding a fast way to decode RSA encryption – the most commonly used encryption and authentication algorithm in the world today. As provided by jamie, a cleaned-up transcript of the pinoy: Leo de Velez, and Ron Rivest’s (the “R” in RSA) emailed conversation may be found here, but be warned – it’s quite mathematical. In this transcript, Leo de Velez also mentioned that the Manila Bulletin agreed to wait for more information before printing the article, which Edu Lopez of that newspaper simply failed to do.
