Beware of super Neutronic Analysis
I'm always delighted to read new "doghouse" cases from Bruce Schneier. This one is unbeliveable. I don't know if I'm reading a product description or a Star Trek episode script:"Each of these instances of the prime number based RSA algorithm can now be deciphered using Neutronic analysis. Unlike RSA, Neutronic Encryption is not based on two large prime numbers but rather on the Neutronic forces that govern the distribution of the primes themselves. The encryption that results from Singularic's Neutronic public-key algorithm is theoretically impossible to break."You can find more directly from the source here.
