Cryptanalysis: "trapdoored" prime numbers?

Laurence Goussu - 11/10/2016

A team of researchers, Joshua Fried and Nancy Nadia Heninger (University of Pennsylvania), Pierrick Gaudry (CNRS/University of Lorraine) and Emmanuel Thomé (CARAMBA team, Inria/University of Lorraine), has recently demonstrated that certain standards used in cryptography in order to secure exchanges and communication use prime numbers whose origin is unverifiable: at least 37% in HTTPS (of the million most visited Internet websites), and at least 13% on IPsec VPNs. This represents a real risk of spying on both individuals and economic interests.
